Welsh Minister sets out digital government vision

In the wake of establishing the Centre for Digital Public Services Wales (CDPS) , the Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport has invited the public to provide feedback on the devolved administration’s digital plans.

Lee Waters said: 

“We are creating a digital strategy for Wales that will help us deliver against that vision. It must set out clearly our ambition for Wales, the outcomes we want to see and the actions that will deliver them.”

“Digital in Wales will improve quality of life, sustainability and economic growth, creating user-centred public services supported by effective leadership, data and a culture of innovation and collaboration.”

“We are quite advanced in our thinking but we want to test where we’ve got to and crowdsource ideas to strengthen it. We are therefore sharing our draft openly to get your input to help shape the final version.”

The strategy is separated into missions which sit below the vision. The missions describe what we want to achieve:


The Welsh Government plans to publish its final strategy in 2021, which will include a twin focus on digital services and the digital economy. These plans will be delivered through partnership working and collaboration with all of the organisations responsible for providing public services in Wales and with the support of the Chief Digital Officers in the Welsh Government and Local Government and CDPS.

The CDPS, which has helped develop this strategy, will also have a role in monitoring and reporting on progress once the strategy is launched.
