Promotion

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.

Much of our work involves submitting evidence to Welsh and UK Government Committees – both written and verbal. Over the last 12 months we have submitted evidence to the following committees:

  1. National Infrastructure Commission for Wales : Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee

  3. Supporting People on Low Incomes : Equalities and Communities Committee
  4. The Status of the Welsh Baccalaureate : Children, Young People and Education Committee

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