More help for Welsh business

In his speech to the Welsh Labour conference, First Minister Carwyn Jones announced that the Welsh Government is creating a new Entrepreneurship Support scheme to encourage new businesses and jobs. It will be partly financed with European Union aid.

Wales isn’t just a great place to come and do business, it is a great place to grow your own business. And it is about to get better. Today I am pleased to announce the creation of a new £40 million Entrepreneurship Support scheme for Wales - this will support 10,000 new enterprises, and create over 17,000 new jobs over the next five years.
