Today thousands of people are employed in retail jobs that simply did not even exist five years ago, and a quarter of non-food retail sales in Wales are online.
This transformation will only accelerate, with huge implications for the Welsh economy.
The WRC is committed to explaining what these developments will look like and what steps need to be taken by government and retailers to deliver positive change. We have a vision of a more productive industry committed to sustainable growth which will continue to play it’s vital and unique role within the Welsh economy. 

The WRC’s Summer Reception is the premier event in the Welsh retail calendar, attracting senior retailers, parliamentarians, and influencers.
Scheduled for Wednesday 28 June, our 2017 reception is being kindly sponsored by Hannah Blythyn AM and will feature a keynote address from the Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Ken Skates AM.
