Regional Chief Appointed To Boost North Wales Economy

North Wales has been given its own chief regional officer by the Welsh government, whose role will be delivering economic growth in the region.

The Daily Post revealed that Gwenllian Roberts has been appointed to the role on an interim basis, and will therefore start the process of bringing partners together to help develop the area’s economy, as well as providing leadership.

According to the newspaper, the North Wales Growth Bid is expected to receive approval next year, which would give the region a pot of money specifically for economic development.

The bid for a total of £1.38 billion in funding was submitted to the Treasury earlier this month. Under the proposals there would be £20 million to kick-start private investment in various industrial estates around the region, as well as money to expand Wrexham’s industrial estate and technology park.

Among the benefits expected from introducing this role are better integrated transport, joined up development planning, and improved strategic planning across everything from housing to skills development.

FSB Wales policy chair Janet Jones welcomed the announcement and said that it’s important to work together to address the current imbalance in the Welsh economy.

She said that this new approach will enable business and political leaders to “fully exploit the particular opportunities within each region”.

“Allowing regions to identify their own priorities based on the needs of their businesses is the key here,” Ms Jones added.
