Creating the right economic conditions

As a government, we are very proud of the part we play in helping businesses expand, create and retain jobs.

As a pro-business government, we work hard to create the right economic conditions to support commercial ventures, regardless of their size, helping to create and safeguard jobs right across Wales.

The latest published Labour Market Statistics speak loudly in support of the work the Welsh Government does.  

There are 8,000 more people in work in Wales than 12 months ago, with employment up by 1% over the year to a near-historic rate. Meanwhile, improvement in economic inactivity in Wales has outperformed the UK average and fallen by 1.1% over the year.

Our support for Welsh businesses is making a difference, and we will continue to do everything we can to help grow our economy here in Wales.
