Ceredigion businesses and residents are invited to comment on Ceredigion County Council's Economic Strategy for the county.

Boosting Ceredigion’s Economy: A Strategy for Action 2020-2035 outlines how we will work together to ensure strong, sustainable and resilient growth for Ceredigion over the next 15 years.

This is a strategy which focuses on the county’s long term economic prosperity, with extensive consultation undertaken with people over the past year. The strategy has also given great consideration to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on businesses and the action plan has been updated to consider actions to respond to those immediate implications on Ceredigion’s economy.

Ceredigion County Council would like to gather the views of businesses and residents on the measures set out in the strategy, and your views are important to help shape the future of the local economy.

Councillor Ellen ap Gwynn, Leader of Ceredigion County Council, said: “We are acutely aware of the impact Covid-19 is having on our economy in Ceredigion, and the challenges ahead of us in dealing with the effects of Brexit. We will continue to work as a Council with the Welsh Government and others to support our businesses in this period, but it is also important for us to set out our strategy clearly to enable long-term growth in our economy. This is why we are keen to hear the views of Ceredigion businesses, organizations and residents so that we can act in partnership to create a prosperous future.”

The strategy also supports Ceredigion County Council’s Corporate Strategy for 2017-2022 to boost the economy.
