Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb is on a two day tour of north Wales which has seen him visit Job Centre Plus in Shotton, the first Wales JCP to adopt Universal Credit and Raythoen Broughton. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

During the trip he will travel the breadth of North Wales, visiting businesses and meeting the people who are helping the North Wales economy grow. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He will also look at the the regions creaking transport infrastructure including the electrification of north Wales rail lines. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In a speech at the Daily Post annual business awards, Stephen Crabb is expected to say: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

North Wales is a beacon for investment and jobs – a Northern Powerhouse for the Welsh economy. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

This government has a long-term economic plan that creates the right conditions for growth in North Wales – a recovery that is broad based and balanced; that reaches into every region of the UK, so that London and the south-east don’t suck in the best at the expense of the rest. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

North Wales is not just an economic region in itself, it is part of a wider community – not just South to Swansea and Cardiff, but North and East to Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Humberside. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Northern Powerhouse the Chancellor has spoken about is not exclusive – not restricted to England. It’s about linking the northern regions, including North Wales, to trade, grow, attract private investment, and attract the best people. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Business leaders in North Wales are the driving force behind the economic recovery in Wales and the people that are making North Wales our own Northern Powerhouse. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
