Steps forward made in inward investment across the Swansea Bay City Region


Councillors, at a scrutiny meeting on the 3 March, were pleased to hear that major steps forward had been made in relation to inward investment in the Swansea Bay City Region and that the outstanding recommendations made by the Panel to Cabinet last year had been put in place.

The Panel felt that the creation of a regional marketing suite for inward investment inquiries based at the Swansea Bay University Campus was considered positive move.  The idea of a virtual team and a marketing manager to take forward inquiries was also seen as an important step forward.  Councillors believe that this will go a long way to filling the gap on what the region had lacked previously which was a welcoming ‘front of house’ available to potential investors.   The panel were also pleased to hear that a portfolio of offerings had also been developed.
