Stretching from Newport, Pembrokeshire, in the north-west to Aberavon in the south-east, the picturesque coastline covers 320 miles and it is understandable why tourism is a key player in the region’s economy.
The major towns across the Swansea Bay Region heading westwards are: Neath, Llanelli, Carmarthen, Pembroke Dock, Haverfordwest, Milford Haven and Fishguard. The region also has an abundance of smaller, thriving market towns that include Llandeilo and Narberth.
Swansea is by far the largest city in the region and a metro area population of 311,000 makes it the second largest in the country. Swansea is home to the Wales’ biggest indoor market and is the commercial heart for the region, with a varied retail offering, excellent arts and leisure facilities and a new 3,500 capacity, indoor arena is nearing completion.
The Swansea Bay Region includes four local authorities: Pembrokeshire, the City and County of Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire County Councils. The region is a significant driver of the Welsh economy and has a resident population of 691,000 supporting some 303,000 jobs and containing around 22,500 businesses.
Swansea is the economic hub of this large and diverse region that contains both urban centres and a wide array of rural locations with distinctive yet inter-connected economies and communities. This diversity makes the economy robust and the region is renowned for being an attractive location to live, work, visit and invest.
