Partnerships between the new unitary authorities and the private sector are the key to future growth in the Welsh economy, the Council of Welsh Districts said today.

CWD chair Tom Williams said: 'The Welsh economy has now reached a stage where it can progress no further without the new ideas and imaginative thinking which private enterprise can provide'.

He added that 'a much closer partnership between the private and public sectors is now required to take our economy forward into the next century'.

The CWD says it is vital that the new authorities bring their economic policies together with the various Welsh public sector agencies and the European programmes.

The Council also wants the newly established Welsh Economic Council to develop an all-Wales strategy or framework.

The CWD believe that the new unitaries should take the lead in the Welsh Development Agency's urban regeneration and rural property programmes as part of a wider review of all Welsh Office programmes.
