Plaid Cymru Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Economy Adam Price has called on business bodies to put forward their vision for future investment in infrastructure.
Plaid Cymru secured a commitment to establish a National Infrastructure Commission for Wales (NICW) in its agreement with the Welsh Government, the Compact to Move Wales Forward. Adam Price has launched a consultation seeking the views of members of the business community, and other stakeholders, about the potential role and remit of the National Infrastructure Commission.
Plaid Cymru Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Economy Adam Price said:
“Investing in roads, railways and technology is the best way of boosting the economy and creating jobs, and that’s why Plaid Cymru has made establishing a new National Infrastructure Commission for Wales a priority.
“As a result of our negotiations with the Welsh Government, Plaid Cymru has managed to secure a new body that could bring much-needed investment to all parts of Wales. Plaid Cymru wants our national infrastructure commission to be a specialist body experienced in the financing and procurement of major public infrastructure projects, accelerating investment while driving down costs.
“We want to hear from the business community and indeed other sectors of Welsh society about their own priorities for investment, and how the new Commission can assist in achieving these goals and creating the building blocks of a new economy.”
The consultation is open until Monday 4th July, 2016.
