RICS: Infrastructure Lunch with Ken Skates
RICS in Wales are holding an event with the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure Ken Skates AM on infrastructure priorities for Wales.
The investment opportunities for Wales are immense, with projects such as Horizon Nuclear Power in North Wales, we welcome the Welsh Government's commitment to focus investment in our infrastructure and further welcomes the move to have a Department with a Cabinet Secretary responsible for Infrastructure specifically.
RICS have organised this event to understand the Welsh Government's priorities for the future. The Cabinet Secretary will cover topics on the importance of infrastructure to the Welsh economy, making the most of project opportunities and outlining the role of infrastructure in supporting regional economic growth.
In our 'Building 4 the Future' manifesto, RICS in Wales calls on the Welsh Government to deliver infrastructure for the long term. We highlighted a number projects we would like to see given priority, namely:
◾The electrification of the main line from London to Swansea and the North Wales train network
◾Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon
◾The M4 Relief Road
◾Upgrading the A55
We welcome the commitment from the Cabinet Secretary to focus on these projects, particularly that lie within his devolved remit and welcome his commitment to ensure Wales remains economically resilient and competitive for the future.
Open RICS Professionals, Non RICS and students.
