- doing business in Wales if you’re not used to it,
We will then hear from Alex Fortune from Transport for Wales with an update on their activity.
Transport for Wales was established in 2016 as a not for profit, private company owned by the Welsh Government to provide support and expertise in connection with transport projects in Wales. In 2017, it procured the new Operator and Development Partner for the Wales & Borders railway franchise. This franchise is now 18 months old, and despite the current challenges, is committed to transforming rail services and infrastructure across Wales. The presentation will provide an overview of the franchise, it’s structure and transformation plans .
