International Relations

We are raising Wales’ profile internationally as a first class place to live, study, visit and do business.

To promote Wales and Welsh interests internationally, we:

  • develop intergovernmental relationships
  • host overseas politicians, ambassadors and other figures of international influence during their visits to Wales
  • engage influencers and decision-makers in key markets, such as business leaders and politicians, through overseas visits by Welsh Government ministers
  • encourage and organise activities internationally around calendar events such as St David’s Day, the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the landing of the Mimosa in Patagonia
  • promote Wales as a host for major international events, such as NATO Wales 2014
  • maintain links with other countries through Welsh Government offices, British posts and Welsh societies overseas
  • maintain a web presence through Wales.com.
