Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Business News Channel Launches to Showcase Pembrokeshire


In partnership with Pembrokeshire Council, Bridge Innovation Centre and Pembrokeshire College Business News Wales are pleased to announce the launch of Pembrokeshire business focus on 10th April 2018.

The launch is designed to launch phase 2 of the Pembrokeshire business section on the site, whilst exploring all that Pembrokeshire has to offer. Showcasing the businesses and individuals making a significant impact on the region will be the primary objective.

David Thomas, Bridge Innovation Centre comments:

“There is a lot going on in Pembrokeshire, particularly here at the Bridge Innovation Centre.  There seems to be a lot of business confidence, the property market is picking up more than we have seen in a long time, and businesses in the Innovation Centre are growing to the point where we are struggling to find space for them within our main building.

Our own BUCANIER project, which is an ERDF Sponsored Project in the Ireland Wales programme working with businesses in Food and Drink, Life Science and Renewable Energy sectors was launched at the UK Science Park Association meeting 2 weeks ago. Bringing together partners in Ireland and Wales the project aims to build new clusters and networks and increase the innovation agenda across the regions. We are delighted to see the Pembrokeshire Section of Business News Wales moving into phase 2 on the site and look forward to contributing to it.”

During Pembrokeshire Week, we will be opening up conversation, involving businesses, government, public bodies, local authorities, universities and other stakeholders. By doing so, we will provide our readers with the latest overview of the region.

Mark Powney, Managing Director of Business News Wales, comments: 

“As a ‘Hakin boy’ from Milford Haven I have had first-hand experience of the issues and opportunities Pembrokeshire has in front of itself. Starting my first ever business with the local Princes Trust and former Pembrokeshire Business Initiative. It gives me a tremendous amount of pride to be championing the region.

With an unbeatable tourism offer, an endless supply of wind and tidal energy, endless agriculture opportunities and a local supply chain of engineers and contraction workers stemming from a 50 year old oil and gas refinery industry, Pembrokeshire is really well positioned to face Brexit head on.”

Pembrokeshire week marks the beginning of an ongoing campaign and monthly industry newsletter which will be of interest to all those who work within this high potential area of Wales.

Furthermore, it will provide an opportunity to showcase the leading suppliers and developments within the region.

  • Sector overview – Key facts and figures covering all areas of Pembrokeshire
  • Top influencers – Showcasing the country’s top influencers and businesses
  • Featured stories – A range of featured stories covering a wide range of ongoing developments within region
  • Debates, surveys and polls
  • Interviews with industry leaders
  • Events

One of the core objectives of Business News Wales to showcase Wales as a thriving business destination to the international investment community, and in the launch of this new section highlighting opportunities Pembrokeshire offers at a local, national and international level is our core objective.
