When I first read about the setting up of the City Region Task and Finish Group by Edwina Hart last year, I really

Dr Elizabeth Haywood’s Task and Finish Group have published their long-awaited report on the Cardiff City Region proposal.

got excited by the possibilities of the findings. I then read today of the Group’s report and my early excitement was fortified!

Dr Elizabeth Haywood, as Chair of the Group, and the various members are to be congratulated on producing such a well-researched and considered report. As Elizabeth says, all parties involved, including politicians, business leaders and the public, must grasp the opportunity presented to create a more prosperous region for this and future generations.

Please, please put aside political differences, vested interests and historical barriers and help drive forward the recommendations made in the report. If we do not you can forget any real long-term future for our beloved city and region.

To compete on the world stage we must pool all our resources and sell them to potential visitors, inward investors and our own citizens, to remind them of what a wonderful part of the world we live in.
