North Wales Economic Ambition Board

North Wales Economic Ambition Board

North Wales is a great place to build a business. It's also a great place to build a career.

If you're looking for opportunities, skills and support to help you move forward, we're here to help.

"In late 2017, a partnership that included the six North Wales councils, business partners, colleges and universities, formally launched the North Wales Growth Deal.

The proposals would enable investment of £1.3billion in the North Wales economy from a growth deal investment of £328m capital and £55.4m revenue (totalling £383.4m). 

That's a return of £3.40 for every pound spent.

Over 5,000 jobs could be created, as well as new businesses and housing (including affordable housing).

The North Wales Growth Board – the partnership behind the document – has submitted the proposals to the UK and Welsh governments, and a lot of hard work and negotiations now lie ahead."
