Welsh ports have an important role to play in supporting a number of key commitments within Taking Wales Forward.

These include:

  • promoting Wales for investment from within the UK and around the world, and helping stimulate exports to new and existing markets
  • promoting Green Growth to create sustainable jobs for the future
  • supporting the development of more renewable energy projects 
  • supporting the development of Wales’ tourism businesses.
Through the ports development fund, we have made a of £2 million available for Welsh ports to support these commitments in financial year 2017-18. Around £800,000 was awarded for the first tranche of applications, and around £1.2m is still available for ports to apply for on a competitive basis. .

We want a wide range of ports throughout Wales to be given the opportunity to benefit from the fund.  

Further information can be found in the attached guidance. The deadline for applications to be submitted to Welsh Government is 08 September 2017.
