The Welsh Government is to host a number of events around Wales to sign post Manufacturing Support that SMEs can tap in to.                                                                     

Welsh Government will discuss inform and advise companies; what we know about the effects of BREXIT, how to get help with continuous improvement, support packages that are available, innovation support, apprenticeships, case studies from Welsh companies with opportunities to enter their supply chain and a platform for you to voice your opinions/concerns regarding the future success of the manufacturing sector in Wales.                                                                    

The event is free to attend. It runs from 09:00 to 13:00. A light lunch will be provided so that people can engage in networking after the discussions.                                                                

We hope you can join us and we hope the session will assist your business.
