    A new free business advice and support service is now available for small and medium-sized businesses, designed to complement the services provided by Business Wales. The nationwide Welsh for Business project has government backing, and aims to help small independent companies take advantage of the economic benefits of using more of the Welsh language in their business model. The service is available to all businesses, regardless of their current level of Welsh-language use; many companies will be able to benefit from the advantages of using more Welsh, even if the proprietors themselves don’t speak the language.
