Federation of Small Businesses Meeting
May 25, 2012.
Vernon met with the Federation of Small Businesses on Friday afternoon to hear about their contribution to the local economy and how local small businesses are coping in the current economic climate.
There was much concern about the problem of banks not lending to small businesses, a shortage of financial help and a lack of domestic economic stimulus and appropriate skills.
