Action plan to bring thousands of jobs to South Wales Valleys to be published

A plan to improve areas of the South Wales Valleys will be published today. One of they key priorities include getting 7,000 people in the area into work.

This comes a year after the Ministerial Taskforce for the South Wales Valleys was launched.

'Our Valleys, Our future' has identified three priority areas after visiting communities, groups and businesses from across the locality.

These priorities are:

  • Good quality jobs and the skills to do them.

  • Better public services.

  • And my local community.

The taskforce says it's aiming to close the employment gap between the South Wales Valleys and the rest of Wales by creating 7,000 new jobs.
