Small businesses in Wales want ease of trade to be at the heart of the UK's relationship with Europe post-Brexit.

A report from the Federation of Small Businesses says that small businesses trade based on factors such as ease and cost, and has called on the UK Government to ensure that trade with the EU single market remains as seamless as possible.

This report shows that small firms are optimistic about trading with markets such as Germany, USA and Australia, as well as emerging markets such as China and India.

However, within that optimism is a concern about potential tariffs and non-tariff barriers to trade with the EU, at the very time that the Welsh economy can least afford to see a slowdown in exports.
