    After hopes were raised last week that a buyer had been found for the Murco refinery in Pembrokeshire, the deal is now off, leaving around 400 jobs at risk. We speak to the union representative on the ground and hear from an analyst about the global picture. Plus, are employers sticking their heads in the sand over pensions? Automatic enrolment begins to kick in for small and medium-sized firms this year - we hear what it means for employers and employees. And we talk with some entrepreneurs after a report suggests there has been a shift in attitudes towards starting your own business, in part thanks to TV programmes like Dragon's Den. Our business of the week is the Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill in Pembrokeshire, which has been a family business since 1912.

    After years of uncertainty, it's reported the Murco refinery in Milford Haven has found a buyer - so what happens now? We discuss competition in the energy market after Ofgem refers the "big six" to the new regulator. As new rules come in on peer-to-peer lending we explore alternative finance for businesses. Cardiff Airport is marking one year under government ownership, so we talk about how useful it is to business travellers. Following up on former business of the week Creditsafe - are silly-sounding team building exercises good for business?

    We discuss what the Budget means for businesses and the economy in Wales. We also hear from an independent financial adviser about what we know so far about radical changes to the pension system. We discuss the changes that are likely to reduce investment in renewable energy projects. Our business of the week is what the Chancellor might call a maker and a doer - a manufacturing company in Newtown that had to save itself after a devastating fire last year.
