On her appointment, Elizabeth Fagan CBE said: “My decision to be part of this national initiative is to help the nation in its response to the pandemic. I will continue to remain in touch and remain fully behind our collective ambitions for the region’s economy, especially as we move towards planning for recovery.”
“David has my full support, and I wish him and team the very best until I return.”
