How refreshing to read in Sion Barry’s piece in the Western Mail yesterday that the group considering the potential role of city regions in delivering more jobs and improving prosperity in Wales is calling for evidence.

The group, established by Business Minister Edwina Hart and chaired by Dr Elizabeth Haywood, says that it has found no evidence to support any negative impact on areas outside city regions in other parts of the world. Rather the contrary – they tend to benefit! They are now engaging in wider public consultation on the subject.

What fabulous news for those like me promoting the Cardiff City Region. I really feel that this is valuable momentum being created on this vitally important issue, and look forward to reading the group’s report at the end of May.
