FSB Wales response to announcement of funds for Mid Wales Growth Deal

Commenting on the Secretary of State for Wales’ speech to Conservative Party Conference, in which he announced £55 million over 15 years for the Mid Wales Growth Deal, Ben Francis, FSB Wales Policy Chair, said:

“Small businesses will welcome the Secretary of State’s commitment to the Mid Wales Growth Deal, as well as this signal that UK Government is serious about the deal and is seeking to push it forwards.

“However, the scale of the challenge facing businesses, as well as the challenge in delivering economic development is significant and should not be underestimated. We will need to see more joined up thinking from UK and Welsh Government, as well as more funding for this deal in order to ensure that it delivers for businesses in the region.”
