The Cardiff Capital Region aims to develop and promote south east Wales as a great place to live, work and do business.

Leadership and strategic direction is provided by the Cardiff Capital Region Board established by the Minister for Economy, Science and Transport in November 2013. 

The Board brings together representatives from the business community, education sectors and local authorities to provide advice on the development and growth of the Region.

  • connectivity
  • skills
  • innovation and growth
  • identity.
