The government has met with mixed success in its bid to support businesses in 2005 this is how small business owners perceive what has happened in the year as they headed into the Christmas holidays.
About half of all company directors have said that they believe that Tony Blair and his government has been able to take positive steps to create and nurture an enterprise culture.
According to a poll made by Ernst & Young, the number of entrepreneurs who have expressed happiness with the governmentâ€™s level of support increased ten per cent this year.
But entrepreneurs also expressed their worry about sales and business development for the next 12 months.
Company formation and business solutions experts are hoping that for 2006 some of the governmentâ€™s enterprise focus will be directed at the countryâ€™s more deprived areas in order to foster a more active entrepreneurial spirit in the said areas.
