South Wales Chamber responds to the Welsh Government’s £40m skills and jobs fund

Heather Myers, CEO of South and Mid Wales Chamber of Commerce, said:

“We very much welcome the announcement made by Welsh Government. This additional funding is vital and reflects a commitment to ensuring that the younger generation are supported in finding work and training opportunities in the years to come. It will also ensure a stream of skilled workers which will be paramount to our economic recovery, as well as having significant societal benefits.

“Our hope is that with this additional funding, a direct impact will be had on communities across Wales and the availability of skilled labour for local companies to recruit from, all aiding our recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic.”
