Policy in Wales

Historically, policy has been dealt with at the IoD headquarters in Pall Mall, and that remains the case for issues where the UK has the lead. But an increasing number of policy issues of relevance to business are determined in Cardiff Bay, not Westminster. Support for business, infrastructure investment, planning, education, skills, business rates and environmental regulation are among those activities devolved to the Welsh government.

Decisions taken in Cardiff have a direct impact on business in Wales and the competitiveness of the Welsh economy. In recognition of this, IoD Wales attaches great importance to engaging with the government to influence policies in ways that will assist rather than hinder growth, including playing a prominent role in the Council for Economic Renewal.

To maximise the returns on our resources, we must engage selectively. Regular priorities in our dealings with the Welsh government include modernising and enhancing infrastructure, providing a workforce fit for the 21st century, and increasing the role of the private sector in delivering public services. It is a reflection of IoD Wales’s standing in Cardiff that we are asked to lead on these issues.

We also respond where possible to Welsh (or indeed UK) government consultations, always with members' interests at heart.

IOD_Brexit

As the UK heads towards the possibility of leaving the EU without a deal, it can be difficult for businesses to know where to go for guidance.  Amidst all the political noise and confusion, the IoD is here to give business leaders the information they need to help them prepare and plan.  A no-deal doesn’t have to mean no idea.
