Following the signing of the £1.3bn City Deal for the Swansea Bay City Region, The policy forum for Wales is to host a seminar which will focus on the steps required for effective implementation of the Deal and to assess how best to realise the prospective benefits for the region.
It will occur as stakeholders start to put the deal into practice and begin to develop more detailed plans for financing and delivering the Deal’s proposals on developing skills and infrastructure to support the growth of cutting-edge industries - focused on the health, energy and digital sectors.
Delegates will discuss these proposals as well as the wider regeneration of Swansea city centre and the surrounding region, the potential for maximising the wider economic benefits of the Tidal Lagoon project, and the potential electrification of rail links to London.
You are invited to this seminar which will include keynote addresses from Mark Drakeford AM, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government, Welsh Government, and Rt Hon Alun Cairns MP, Secretary of State for Wales. The Seminar will take place on the morning of Thursday, 26th October 2017 in Central Swansea. Follow this link for full information and registration process
