Cardiff Council's cabinet member for business has defended the city's multi million plans for the future of the capital. Russell Goodway said that the plans unveilled today would put Cardiff in a position that when the economy recovers would mean that the city can "take advantage of that growth."
The councillor said that "smart cities invest in infrastructure, invest in the training and skills of their populations so when businesses start to decide where they are going to locate they will go to those locations where there is an infrastructure that will support the development."
