Vinci Chief Operating Officer David Joyce will lead a panel of experts with the intention to raise the construction industry work load in Wales.
This action was taken because the Welsh Assembly has announced that construction will be a main priority in order to drive economic growth.
National Assembly for Wales’ Enterprise and Business Committee Edwina Hart said the construction panel would feed-in expert advice to the government’s investment plans.
Hart said: “The construction industry in Wales has an estimated 10,000 businesses employing 100,000 people and has a pivotal role to play in the delivery of affordable housing, improved transportation infrastructure, better schools and hospitals and green energy infrastructure.”
David Joyce said: “I am delighted that the Welsh Government has recognised construction as a priority sector and recognised its status as an economic enabler across the economy. I am relishing the challenge of chairing the construction panel and the challenges and opportunities it presents to support the growth of the sector in Wales and provide strategic guidance to the Minister.”
