Welsh Ministerial Construction Forum

The Welsh Construction Forum was established in the summer of 2020 bringing together leading figures from the private and public sectors across Wales’ construction industry along with Wales’ social partners, to support Wales to “build back better” towards a greener zero carbon future.

The Forum is co-chaired by Julie James Minister for Climate Change and Vaughan Gething, MS Minister for Economy.

The Forum is founded on the principles of collaboration between the public and private sectors, building on the principles of the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government and Economic Action Plan to support the construction sector in helping Wales’ economy to prosper. It is also a way of supporting SMEs, growing the foundational economy and developing the low carbon businesses and skills that we need for the future, giving Welsh businesses in the sector the visibility of workflow and security of payment needed to grow with confidence, to continue to employ and train people, and to streamline the process of bidding for public sector work.

The Industry Stakeholders Group, facilitated by Constructing Excellence Wales was set up to ensure the work of the Ministerial Construction Forum is a true reflection of what the industry is experiencing. CEWales’ core principle is one of collaboration and as such the group represents the whole of the construction sector both public and private and its supply chain.

It is open to all Built Environment and construction industry stakeholders and seeks to identify the main issues concerning industry performance through open discussion. Key priorities are then taken to the Ministerial Construction Forum and the Working Groups to develop solutions.
