Lets hope the #WelshGovernment s #BusinessPlan   for Cardiff Airport works.  The plan needs to be robust to deliver on the expectations of a nation and it won't happen over night...
 
Passengers using the #Welsh  airport (Cardiff Airport) fell to its lowest point for years in 2014, dipping to 1,023,932.

Lets hope the #businessplan  can get this #WelshInvestment  back into blue sky's

The decline in passenger numbers using Cardiff airport means the airport served fewer passengers than the year before the Welsh Government

It's the simple things which catch people out in business.  One of these is the #BusinessPlan  .  Some #SME  's understand the need for a business plan, some don't......
 
Simply - a business plan, is a planing tool with 3 main functions:
1.  To organise and prioritise your resources
2.  To show someone else that you know what you are doing
3.  To act as a blueprint for running the business

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at the post
