A growth plan that highlights how the region can create an extra 120,000 jobs has been unveiled. The North Wales Economic Ambition Board has put forward its vision for the region’s economy. The document – A Growth Vision for the Economy of North Wales – urges the UK and Welsh Government to back their ambition for investment and greater powers in the region. They say the return will be an increased size in the region’s economy from £12.5bn to £20bn by 2035.
