THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Please note the date of this seminar has changed.
This seminar will bring together policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the next steps required for the effective implementation of the Growth Deal for the North Wales region. It follows the formal submission by the six North Wales councils of a Growth Bid to the Welsh and UK Government’s and the establishment of a North Wales Growth Board to finalise the Growth Deal and manage its delivery.
Delegates will consider what steps can be taken to realise the deal’s ambitions of enhancing the region’s low carbon, advanced manufacturing and digital sectors; promoting growth and the development of Regional Business and Smart Technology and Innovation hubs; creating 5,000 new jobs and attracting £1bn worth of private sector investment over 15 years.
Further sessions will bring out latest thinking on meeting skills needs, attracting investment, and further commercial priorities for the region - as well as the outlook for the development of major infrastructure projects in the region, including planned improvements to the transport and communications network.
