Elite Clothing

Ambition for stand-out Welsh strengths, green prosperity, skills and local jobs form the top priorities for the Economy Minister, Vaughan Gething, who will today (28 November 2023) set out his plans to deliver the Welsh Government’s mission for a stronger economy.

Responding to the challenges of global disruptions, inflation, interest rates and energy costs, the Welsh Government will set out four priorities that will shape how Wales can respond to uncertainty and exploit new opportunities

  1. A just transition and green prosperity: realising the enormous net zero economic opportunities and engaging with businesses and people to move towards a just transition.
  2. A platform for young people, fair work, skills and success: backing young people to achieve the ambitious futures in Wales. Prioritising their skills and creativity.
  3. Stronger partnerships for stronger regions and our everyday economy: working with regions to agree a smaller set of priorities for growth, local jobs and major investment. New joint working to boost the case for UK investment in projects that crowd in investment and support fair, unionised jobs in areas including nuclear, offshore wind and tech.
  4. Investing for growth: we will work in partnership to focus on our recognised strengths to boost investment and growth that prizes fair work and long-termism. Our new mission-based innovation strategy will target new investment in a post EU landscape, supporting commercialisation, research and development and entrepreneurship.
