Arfon Jones said “My vision is to lead and work with the North Wales Public sector in embracing social value. It is about building an enhanced and strengthened local economy, creating economic growth, jobs and opportunities for local people” he went on to say “we spend around £30M on consumables and my aim is to use this wherever possible to enhance the wellbeing of communities across North Wales”

Keynote speaker Stuart Davies, Director of Sustainable Supply Chains said “Every pound spend locally can generate a greater community good and if the 687,000 people who live in North Wales all spent just £50 a year with local suppliers that would put an extra £34M of income into the local economies” he went on to say “The policy I developed for the OPCC can be the first step towards social reform across North Wales”
