Media Wales is delighted to be partnering the Institute of Welsh Affairs for the 2013 Business Awards.
At a time of mixed verdicts on the state of the Welsh economy, the one clear message that we can send out is to positively promote our very best Wales-wide performers.
Recognising, highlighting and rewarding best practice, business growth and development, and the role of entrepreneurs in both large and small businesses, is a key step in building confidence in our economy.

Despite the current difficult economic climate, Wales remains part of the seventh largest economy in the world, with all the achievement and opportunity that implies.
We must celebrate Welsh those achievements in order to highlight further opportunity and point the way to a brighter future.
With this in mind the Institute of Welsh Affairs and Western Mail have joined forces again this year to promote the primary national business awards scheme for Wales - the Welsh National Business Awards.
These awards will recognise and honour the breadth of business achievement in Wales, in all its variety, with 10 special categories.
The awards ceremony will take place in Cardiff’s City Hall on Friday 8th November 2013.
The competition will be judged by a panel drawn from sponsors and business leaders from across Wales, and will receive extensive coverage in the Western Mail and WalesOnline.co.uk.
Many Welsh businesses have a great story to tell. We look forward to highlighting those of successful businesses and individuals - winners and finalists - that are leading the way.
