Consultation on regional investment in Wales outside the European Union
The Welsh Government has launched a consultation on regional investment following the exit from the EU.
The Welsh Government states, “This public consultation sets out our thinking on the future of regional investment outside the European Union, developed working closely with our partners. It covers a set of proposals for investing replacement funding from the UK Government in a national framework that is underpinned by investments targeted and managed regionally. This will allow us to build on the successful legacy of Welshmanaged European funding programmes. How to respond We will be holding a number of events around Wales for different citizens, stakeholders and communities and will promote these widely. There will be opportunities to engage online and on social media too.

The deadline for responses is 22 May 2020.
The IED will also be preparing a response on behalf of our membership.
