I'd like to conclude that the government in Wales are trying to help businesses in the Wales region to become more profitable with their welsh government e-business team, and they aim to help the businesses by reducing business costs, become more innovative, develop and grow. Furthermore they are also helping the businesses in Wales with their ICT, some of the examples which the government has helped the business to adopt some technology are customer relationship management systems, financial management packages, stock control systems and many more.
