There are currently around 5.7 million SMEs employing 16.3 million people. We are ranked in the top 10 in the world for ease of doing business by the World Bank. 1,000 businesses start here every day. We are now home to three of the top 10 fastest growing companies in Europe and are the number one destination in Europe for inward investment projects.</p><p>But we are not complacent.

The Government backed British Business Bank’s programmes are currently supporting over £6.6 billion of finance to over 89,000 SMEs (as at June 2019) Start-Up Loans, which since 2012 has delivered almost 66,500 loans worth over £527 million to small businesses (at end-August 2019).</p><p>The Rose Review into Female Entrepreneurship published in March explored barriers women face starting a business and what can be done to overcome them.

In Q1 2019, net imports of electricity via interconnectors were 6.0 TWh for the UK. This is equivalent to 6.4% of total demand over the period. In Great Britain, as part of the Capacity Market process, National Grid Electricity System Operator assesses how much capacity will be needed in the years ahead factoring in the risks of particular technologies not delivering. This annual process includes an assessment of how interconnectors should be derated to reflect the likely reliability of electricity flow during times of stress. We then secure all the capacity needed through the Capacity Market, ensuring we meet our reliability standard.</ins></p><p><ins class="ministerial">In Northern Ireland, the Single Electricity Market operates as a single, shared wholesale electricity market between Ireland and Northern Ireland, with electricity flows between Ireland and Northern Ireland treated as internal flows. The Single Electricity Market’s capacity remuneration mechanism is working well to ensure security of supply of electricity in Northern Ireland.</ins></p>
