Response to Welsh Government announcement of £120million for Growth Deal

North Wales Growth Deal

The North Wales Economic Ambition Board has responded to the Welsh Government announcement of £120m for the North Wales Growth Deal.


A spokesman said: "We welcome this commitment of £120million from the Welsh Government, which matches the £120million set aside for the Growth Deal by the UK Government in the Autumn Budget Statement.


“The Ambition Board has been in discussions with the Welsh Government and Ken Skates, Cabinet Member for Economy and Transport, and had a very productive meeting with him today (Friday, December 7).


“We thank him for his continued support of the North Wales Growth Bid, and for sharing our vision to bring about further economic growth in the region.


Support an even bolder Growth Deal

“This gives us a firm foundation on which to implement the priority programmes and projects that formed the Growth Bid, from 2020 onwards.


“However, we urge both Governments to invest a larger matching capital sum to support an even bolder and more impactful Growth Deal.

 
“This is a strong starting point and one with which we can move forward as discussions continue and we look to kick-start a new phase of economic prosperity, supporting the world-leading industries and organisations we have here in North Wales, creating jobs, enhancing skills and improving infrastructure across all six counties."
