Promoting the value of infrastructure to the Welsh economy and seeking increased investment is a key priority for CECA Wales – both for the benefit of members and, more broadly, for the economy of Wales, a resilient environment and high social value.  We continuously work to raise the profile of CECA Wales amongst clients, politicians and policy makers and we inform and influence policy making wherever and whenever we can.

We have produced, via our Annual Conferences, a number of industry priority reports including “Transporting Our Future Generations” which focuses on the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act and “Streamlining Public Procurement” which is self explanatory!

We also produce regular briefings, articles and a blog on important and topical issues which affect the infrastructure sector,
