Wendy Dearing (Dean of the Institute Management & Health at UWTSD) said: “We welcome the opportunity to take part in the Welsh Government’s Shaping Wales’ Future consultation and its proposal to introduce a minimal digital living standard.
Providing the right digital infrastructure is crucial to enable Wales to realise its economic potential and to ensure equality of opportunity for its citizens. We look forward to working closely with the Welsh Government to achieve its aims.
