Centre response to Welsh Government ‘Prosperity for All’ national strategy

Derek Walker, Chief Executive of the Wales Co-operative Centre, said:

“The new national strategy signals a step in the right direction towards building a more inclusive economy.  Welsh Government has put more focus on spreading opportunity, addressing regional equalities and promoting fair work. The proposal for a new economic contract between business and government could see businesses expected to do more to create a fairer society in return for Government’s support. I would expect the social businesses we work with will welcome this proposal. By their very nature social enterprises and co-operatives consider the social and environmental impact of their work alongside the bottom line.  The Wales Co-operative Centre has already put inclusive economic growth at the heart of our new strategy. We look forward to working with Welsh Government to make it a reality”.

Further details on the new government strategy can be read on the Welsh Government website.
