On Thursday 31st January the ‘Growing Mid Wales Partnership’ held an exhibition in the National Assembly for Wales. The exhibition showcased businesses in Mid Wales and promoted the potential for a Mid Wales growth deal.
Kirsty Williams, Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for Brecon and Radnorshire, co-sponsored the event. She said:
“The exhibition was a really impressive display of what Mid Wales can offer. It took over the Senedd for a day and left everyone there in no doubt of what our economy can contribute.
“As proposals for a Mid Wales growth deal move forward it’s crucial that the potential of our economy is fully realised.”

Speakers included Ken Skates (Welsh Government Minister for Economy and Infrastructure), Cllr Rosemarie Harris (Leader of Powys County Council), and Cllr Ellen ap Gwynn (Leader of Ceredigion County Council).
