Welcome to Swansea 2020

The city and county of Swansea is undergoing a major transformation and is emerging as a confident and dynamic European waterfront city.

Swansea has benefited from significant investment in recent years. Facilities such as the National Waterfront Museum, Wales National Pool, Liberty Stadium, the LC, Princess Way Development and Meridian Quay are significant expressions of this new confidence, whilst flagship developments such as SA1 Swansea Waterfront and our stunning natural environment are making Swansea a vibrant place where people want to live, work and visit.

An Economic Regeneration Strategy has been produced to build upon the success achieved to date and to guide the regeneration of Swansea's economy over the next ten years.

The Strategy will deliver the prosperity theme of the Community Plan, and has been produced by the Swansea Economic Regeneration Partnership, which is the Community Plan's 'Partnership for Prosperity'. It seeks to raise prosperity levels for all people, businesses and communities in the City & County of Swansea.  This strategy is known as Swansea 2020.

  • An internationally competitive economy, with output, productivity and wage rates at least as good as the UK's;

  • Wales' leading centre for the knowledge economy, recognised for its adoption of innovation and anticipation of market and technology change;

  • Operating with an economically active population equal in size in percentage terms to the Great Britain average, known for its high skills and providing critical labour mass in our priority Focus Clusters;

  • A proud, vibrant and ambitious city, at the heart of a wider region where people want to live, work, study, invest and visit.
