Businesses in North Wales are set to get additional support to help them grow and thrive now that the team who will be heading up North Wales Vision has been announced.
Insider Media reported that Alwen Williams will lead the North Wales Economic Ambition Programme Office. Her previous roles have included senior area manager for Openreach in London and director of BT Wales.
The office will be based at the Conwy Business Centre in Llandudno Junction and initially, the aim will be to “leverage commercial investment and build business cases for priority projects in 2020”, the news provider explained.
The overriding aim of the new group is to increase investment in North Wales and create thousands of new jobs while helping the local economy to grow.
One of the primary areas of focus will be spearheading the development of the seven programmes that make up the £1 billion Growth Deal.
Ms Williams stressed that although this is an important aspect of her team’s work, it won’t be their only focus.
“The Vision for North Wales is not limited to the Growth Deal - as pivotal as that is - because there are many other schemes across the six counties and beyond that will help boost the economy and interweave for the benefit of the region for generations to come,” she told the news provider.
Earlier this month, Startup Wales reported that people who want to start a new business in the region can get extra support through Miwtini, a new business start-up programme that’s been launched by the Enterprise Hub.
It’s open to people in Conwy, Anglesey, Denbighshire and Gwynedd, the news provider revealed. The programme will run a range of sessions across a variety of topics related to entrepreneurship to help people get their ideas off the ground.
