Secretary of State responds to newly released FDI figures
In Wales 5,443 new jobs were created in the last year through 97 projects, an increase of 7% year on year. In total almost 7,000 jobs were created or safeguarded by FDI.
Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said:
These figures demonstrate that Wales remains an attractive destination for overseas investment, providing a valuable boost to the economy and creating thousands of jobs.
Our country now has a tremendous platform to build on over the coming months as we make plans to leave the EU, forge stronger relations with international partners and attract more investment from emerging markets.
