The Working with Business National Project has been developed to provide local authorities with a framework within which they can develop and improve the online provision of information and transactional services for local businesses. The project will offer a range of products designed to enable local authorities to support their local businesses more efficiently and effectively. It will be accessible to all businesses, but will primarily focus on services provided to small and medium businesses and will aim to satisfy all business needs, both day-to-day and future long-term development strategies. The outputs of the Project will be freely available to all local authorities to adopt from 31 March 2004.Full details of the Project are available at: <http://www.workingwithbusiness.net/>
