The Welsh Construction Forum: “Building Back a Better and Greener Wales”
The Welsh Construction Forum was established in the summer of 2020 bringing together leading figures from the private and public sectors across Wales’ construction industry along with Wales’ social partners, to support Wales to “build back better” towards a greener zero carbon future.
The Forum, co-chaired by Lee Waters MS, Deputy Minister for Climate Change and Vaughan Gething, MS Minister for Economy, is currently reviewing its priority activities for the 2022/23.
Building on the principles of the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government and Economic Action Plan to support the construction sector in helping Wales’ economy to prosper the Forum is founded on the principles of collaboration between the public and private sectors. It is also a way of supporting SMEs, growing the foundational economy and developing the low carbon businesses and skills that we need for the future, giving Welsh businesses in the sector the visibility of workflow and security of payment needed to grow with confidence, to continue to employ and train people, and to streamline the process of bidding for public sector work.
