Welsh Labour’s Economy and Infrastructure Secretary, Ken Skates is asking people for their views on the economic priorities needed to ensure a fairer, more prosperous and more secure Wales.
The Welsh Labour Government would like to hear the views of people, businesses and organisations across Wales, so they can be considered as part of its ongoing work to refresh its economic priorities following the recent vote to leave the European Union.
Figures show that Wales is currently in a strong economic position with employment at its highest rate on record, the number of unemployed people is down by 30,000 over the last year to its lowest level since 2006 and Wales is also outperforming all other parts of the UK with the sharpest declining rate of unemployment over the past 12 months. The Welsh Government wants to see us build upon this success and develop economic priorities that deliver for everyone in Wales.
The Welsh Labour Government is also engaging directly with key partners and a wide variety of businesses and will be seeking their views on the best economic priorities for Wales. All the information gathered will be used to inform the development of a new strategic direction or Wales’ economy.
