Jeremy hosts the Neath Area Economic Forum

I recently hosted the first Neath Area Economic Forum. Over forty organisations from private, public, voluntary sectors and trade unions met at NPTC Group college in Neath to discuss building the local, regional and national economy. The forum included delegates from Neath Inspired Business Improvement District, Cuddy Group, Vattenfall, NPT CVS, Dove Workshop, Celtic Energy, Tesco and NPT Homes. The event was opened by Julie James AM, the Welsh Government Minister for Science and Skills.

The issues raised at the Neath Area Economic Forum will be a core part of a report from Neath AM Jeremy Miles to Welsh Government ministers on their upcoming economic strategy and the work of The Valleys Taskforce.
