Report Launch: Fiscal Firepower and Effective Policy-Making in Wales

Join us for the launch of our new report examining the Welsh Government’s fiscal settlement with a specific focus on borrowing powers.

How was the Welsh Government’s fiscal framework arrived at, and is it fit for purpose? How much does it allow the Welsh Government to live up to the initial promises of devolution, forging a separate path where necessary? Can the Welsh Government enact radical policy and change people’s lives in Wales?

These are some of the questions we address in our new paper, as we attempt to spark a conversation around the importance of Wales’ fiscal framework in addition to the current debate around its constitutional powers.

Join us for this hour-long virtual event, to get an overview of the report, delivered by Harry Thompson, Economic Policy Lead at the IWA and author of the report, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
