North Wales in strong position, Ken Skates says

A plan to boost the north Wales economy will be presented to the Treasury by the autumn with a request for cash support for infrastructure projects.

Council leaders hope to secure a deal similar to the £1.2bn Cardiff Capital Region agreement approved in March.

They were joined by Economy Secretary Ken Skates at a meeting in St Asaph, Denbighshire.

"I'm confident that north Wales is in the strongest position that it has been in for many, many years in terms of potential for economic growth," he said.
