Earlier this month, over 60 businesses attended an event run by Denbighshire County Council, outlining the Growth Deal for North Wales that’s in the pipeline and expected to be agreed in the not too distant future.
Business News Wales explained that the deal is expected to generate around £1 billion of investment in the region. The North Wales Economic Ambition Board is working hard to deliver this new Growth Deal, and the event was a chance for businesses of all sizes to learn more about how they could stand to benefit.
The Ambition Board is made up of representatives from six local councils in North Wales, which Iwan Trefor Jones, corporate director of Gwynedd County Council, said has helped them achieve more than they could have done all acting separately.
“We have become one voice that can knock on the door of London and Cardiff and fight the corner of this region, showing that we can make a difference,” he asserted.
The businesses attending the event were asked to work with their local councils to support the Growth Deal, as well as to talk to their local authorities to help overcome challenges and other hurdles in the areas they operate in.
Attendees at the recent Daily Post Business Awards stressed that it’s important to promote the image of North Wales as a business destination as well as a tourism hotspot.
Sarah Hampson, marketing and communications manager at Ruth Lee Ltd, said that one of the things that will help Wales grow is more people realising you don’t need to be based centrally in London or Manchester to do well as a business.
