Members of the Federation of Small Businesses have held a roundtable meeting with South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon.
The event, held at the Pennoyer Centre in Pulham St Mary, focused on FSB campaigning priorities such as connectivity and skills.
The meeting was chaired by FSB National Councillor Mike Drain.
The business rates system was also discussed, with Mr Bacon describing it as a “tax on existence” that should be abolished and replaced.
He further expressed confidence that small businesses would benefit from new trading opportunities created by Brexit.
Members present highlighted the rising challenge of cyber crime and the importance of a more co-ordinated response.
Further roundtables are being scheduled for later in the year.
