OPIN-2016-0009 Co-operatives Fortnight

This Assembly:

Notes that Co-operatives Fortnight is 18th June-2nd July and welcomes the recent report on the UK co-operative economy 2016, published by Co-operatives UK, which states that the number of members of co-operatives in the UK has increased by over 2 million since 2012 to 17.5 million.  Co-operatives now contribute £34 billion to the UK economy. In Wales, co-ops provide employment for thousands of people, with a turnover approaching £1 billion.

Urges the Welsh Government to continue to recognise the contribution of co-operatives to a stronger, fairer Wales, and to prioritise implementation of the Co-operative and Mutuals Commission recommendations.
