Council for Economic Renewal
The Council for Economic Renewal, formerly known as the Business Partnership Council, provides advice to help inform economic and business policies in Wales.
Under the Government of Wales Act 1998 we have a statutory duty to consult with businesses where the exercise of its functions impact on them. This duty to consult was strengthened by the Government of Wales Act 2006, which required Welsh Ministers to make a Business Scheme setting out how they proposed to consult with business.
To view the Business Scheme please visit the National Assembly for Wales website. (External link)
The Council for Economic Renewal is made up of a range of business, social enterprise and trade union representatives. It is chaired by the First Minister.
In agreement with the Council we have retained a flexible approach to membership that enables the Council to draw from the widest and best range of knowledge and experience.
The Council for Economic Renewal meet three times a year. The next meeting will be held on 03 February 2014.
