During the twentieth century, Cardiff’s coal export and steel production sector declined, and the services sector took its place.

Banks, building societies, insurance, and pension companies are all present in the city.
Wales has eight enterprise zones, each one focused on a particular sector, ranging from ICT, space and electronic engineering; to business, law and accountancy. The three universities in Wales, including Cardiff University, and the further education colleges such as Cardiff College, work closely with the enterprise zones to help businesses access their research, knowledge transfer, and training capabilities. In fact, Cardiff has a population of around 70,000 students, which is one of the biggest in the country, ensuring that student accommodation in Cardiff is filled all year round.
