Welsh Economy Research Unit

We aim to be the primary source of high quality, academically relevant research on the Welsh Economy for Welsh businesses, public and third sectors.

We provide expertise on the Welsh economy and regional economics analysis within Cardiff Business School. We also assist School staff who are undertaking research on the regional economy.

Superfast Broadband Project

We are undertaking research on the economic benefits associated with the take-up of superfast, broadband-enabled technologies by businesses in Wales. Our research will help maximise take-up and exploitation of superfast broadband-enabled services as well as assess the economic impact of these services.

For more information, please take a look at the Superfast Broadband Project website.

Welsh Economic Review

The Unit produces, administers and publishes the Welsh Economic Review, which is now in its 28th year. The Welsh Economic Review provides commentary and analysis of the Welsh economy in a manner that promotes understanding and informs decision-making and is a vehicle to engage with the Welsh business and academic community.

Volume 24, Spring 2016, of the Welsh Economic Review on Economic Policy for Peripheral Economies, has been published by Cardiff University Press.

Back copies of the Welsh Economic Review are currently being migrated to the Cardiff University Press site.
