About Welsh Government

The Welsh Government is the devolved government for Wales in the UK and is responsible for health, education, the environment and securing economic growth. First Minister, Rt. Hon. Carwyn Jones is visiting the US to promote inward investment in Wales and supporting Welsh exports to help businesses grow. The special relationship between Wales and North America is strong. Over 250 companies from North America invest in Wales and many Welsh companies are increasingly investing and doing business in North America. In addition, Welsh universities and centers of excellence have developed links with North American universities - both for academic exchange and for joint research purposes.

Before his visit, Rt. Hon. Carwyn Jones said:

“For Wales, the special relationship is about building on the strong cultural and trade links that already exist between our two countries.

“Wales has long been a destination of choice for many American businesses and we want to welcome even more in the future.  Equally, Welsh businesses have been successful in selling to the United States across a range of sectors and I believe we can do even better in the future. 

“In my discussions with American businesses, politicians and diplomats, I will be raising the importance of further developing free trade between our countries and the removal of barriers, to make trade between us easier and quicker.”
