Priorities for the economy

Wales is in a good position to build a stronger and more secure economy, and we are seeking initial views on the priorities for the economy.

Ken Skates, Cabinet Secretary for the Economy and Infrastructure, explains more about this in the video.

With employment and inward investment having hit record highs, and with an unemployment rate lower than the rest of the UK as a whole, the foundations are in place to deliver against the challenges and opportunities ahead. Wales is already a great place to come and do business, and a great place to grow a business, but there are opportunities to make things even better – a pro-business approach in a fair society helping to deliver the best outcomes for Wales.

However, Government does not have all the answers – it cannot do this alone. We need to involve and collaborate with others so that we focus on the things that make a real and lasting difference.

Individuals, business and key partners are invited to come forward with initial thoughts and ideas.

How can Wales’ economy be improved, to grow prosperity and deliver greater financial security for businesses and individuals?

How can we develop more home-grown, innovation-driven enterprise?

These are the type of questions that need to be considered.
