Wales and the whole of the UK are already benefiting from the economic, sporting and cultural opportunities generated by the 2012 games, with 848 schools and colleges in Wales already registered as part of the London 2012 education programme “Get Set”. 79 projects in Wales have also been awarded the Inspire Mark, including Criw Cymru, a project run in partnership with Galeri, Caernarfon and Theatre Brycheiniog in Brecon.

In addition, 10 businesses registered in Wales have won work directly supplying the Olympic Delivery Authority. These include Euroclad, which provided the external cladding for the Olympic stadium, and Williamson Technical Services, which provided specialist site services for the stadium. Many other businesses based in Wales have secured contracts to supply goods or services within the London 2012 supply chain. I am sure that you would join me in congratulating these companies on securing London 2012 contracts.
