Government plans announced to increase competition for small businesses

The government has recently announced a raft of plans to increase fair competition in certain markets for small businesses and reduce the regulatory burden.

Rachael Power, Small Business Editor of BusinessZone.co.uk has highlighted the plans which include a new ‘Crown Marketplace’ to build on the Digital Marketplace procurement process and make it easier for small to medium sized businesses to supply the government with goods and services.

The plans also cover changes in other areas including;

  • Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) report
  • Small business consumer rights
  • Innovate UK funding
  • UK Trade and Investment
  • Contracts Finder service
  • GREATbusiness.gov.uk
