We want to support the growth of our economy, to strengthen Welsh businesses and to increase jobs.

Strong, innovative and competitive businesses are essential for the economy of Wales.

We are a pro-business government, working closely with companies to create growth and jobs in every part of Wales.

Our aims are:

  • to achieve balanced and sustainable growth
  • attract inward investment
  • increase employment.

'Economic Renewal: a new direction' is our vision for the Welsh economy.

Through our Council for Economic Renewal we consult with businesses and engage the ideas, views and experience of businesses, trade unions and others on key issues facing the economy.
