Inquiry into regional policy – what next for Wales?

http://senedd.assembly.wales/SiteSpecific/ArrowGraphics/Inquiry_Stage_04.jpg

The External Affairs and Additional Legislation has agreed to look at the future of regional policy in Wales.

Regional policy sets out to reduce regional disparities in economic performance. These policies are currently agreed at an EU level. In the current 7-year financial framework, £2 billion of EU funding is earmarked for this purpose in Wales.

As part of the inquiry, the Committee will look at:

  • the status of existing programmes (including levels of commitment and questions around programme closure).
  • the future of regional policy in Wales (in the context of the United Kingdom outside the European Union);
  • best practice elsewhere in the world, including alternative models that are used to reduce regional disparities in economic performance.
