Decades of Wales’ partnership with the EU leaves a legacy on which to build our economic future.

We still have time to run on our EU funding programmes 2014–2020, but now is the time to discuss the future.

The publication of our policy paper Regional investment in Wales after Brexit in December 2017 forms one in a series of Securing Wales’ Future papers setting out our vision for Wales once we have left the EU.  

Engagement responses

During 2018, we carried out a range of engagement activities to seek views on the paper’s ideas and proposals for designing a new approach to regional economic development and investment in Wales.

The responses received from this engagement activity are published in an independently produced Regional Investment in Wales after Brexit - Engagement Report below.

The Welsh Government’s next steps to co-produce with partners a new regional investment policy and fund for Wales include the establishment of an external Regional Investment for Wales Steering Group. Chaired by Huw Irranca-Davies AM, it will draw on the knowledge and experience in our businesses, local authorities, our academic institutions, the third sector and wider public sector across Wales.

A two-year project with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is also underway. The internationally renowned body will use their extensive international experience of regional economic development to provide advice to the Welsh Government as it develops, with partners, new plans for Regional Investment in Wales after Brexit.
