Ian Price, CBI Wales Director, said:
"The Prime Minister’s decision to back HS2 is exactly the sort of bold, decisive action required to inject confidence in the economy. It sends the right signal around the world that the UK is open for business.
“HS2 shows the Government’s commitment to levelling-up the nations and regions of the UK. The project will bring jobs, new homes, skills and investment to the areas of the country that need them most.
“With connectivity in Wales such a pressing issue, it’s important to look at how financial benefits resulting from investment in HS2 can be used to level-up our own transport and digital infrastructure, as well as supporting other key priorities.”
