Scheme reference number: SA.51014

The aims of the scheme are to allow the Welsh Government to:

  • assist with the development of the most disadvantaged regions in Wales by supporting sustainable investment, job creation and safeguarding employment
  • help address regional imbalances within Wales and between Wales and the rest of the UK
  • help address market failures such as commercial property investment
  • help to offset the difficulty that SMEs have obtaining capital investment and employment aid given the risk-averse nature of certain financial markets and the limited collateral that SMEs may be able to offer.
