Vaughan Gething AM, Minister for Economy
I have today announced appointments to my new Ministerial Advisory Board, which will provide expert advice on economic policy issues.
The Board’s membership brings together individuals with a diverse range of skills, knowledge and expertise to give their perspective in areas of business, academia, employee voice and the Fair Work agenda.
Through our Economic Mission we want to create the conditions where more people feel confident about planning their futures in Wales. The Board will provide valuable insight into the economic issues affecting young people, as well as identify best practice and learning from areas outside the UK and explore how this could inform our policy thinking in Wales.
As members draw on their personal knowledge and expertise, their input will complement and add value to existing external sources of advice provided by other fora and partners.
I am delighted to appoint Professor Andrew Campbell as Chair. Andrew’s experience as a leader and academic in a key economic sector means he is more than equipped to fulfil this key role. He will be ably supported by Vice Chair, Andrea Wayman, who has extensive experience in social enterprise and inclusive employment.
