The constitutional settlement for Wales is evolving; new powers have come in recently and more will follow in the months to come. However, these powers are not well understood by businesses operating in or with vested interests in Wales - something highlighted by the COVID-19 crisis and Brexit.

The first part of this session will help attendees gain a better appreciation and clearer picture of the powers now vested in Wales. The second part of the session will explain the devolved responsibilities of the Welsh public bodies under the Civil Contingencies Act, and the support they can provide to citizens and businesses to protect them and facilitate recovery when crises strike. 

What will I learn? 

  • What the constitutional settlement is and how it's taking shape
  • How devolved responsibilities can help support crisis recovery
  • What said new powers mean for business


  • Helen Morris - Deputy Director, Assurance, Welsh Government
  • David Rich - Welsh Government
