Policy Forum for Wales

Delivering the City Deal and developing the Swansea Bay City Region

November 2017

This seminar focused on priorities for delivering the Swansea City Deal and developing the Swansea Bay City Region.

It followed the signing of the £1.3bn deal, and was an opportunity for policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss the next steps for delivering the infrastructure, skills and funding necessary to realise the deal’s ambition of putting the region at the forefront of cutting edge developments within the digital economy, health and energy industries.

With the deal expected to contribute £3.3bn to the regional economy and support the creation of 33,000 jobs, delegates considered the implications for businesses, productivity and economic growth across the region, alongside delivering the deal’s 11 major projects to make these benefits a reality.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for Wales seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
