St David’s Day is a time for us to celebrate all that is great about Wales – from our entrepreneurial spirit and rich culture to our historic landmarks and warm welcome.
Many will be celebrating our national day by embracing the traditions that make Wales the ambitious, confident and outward looking nation that it is today.
And I’m delighted to say that there is much to be proud about.
Millions of people visit Wales each year to enjoy our world-class museums and beaches, ancient castles or stunning mountains and coastline.
Our economy is growing too - with more investment, trade and jobs, while our universities attract some of the brightest students from across the UK and further afield.
And of course Wales was showcased to the world at the Newport NATO summit last year – the largest gathering of international leaders ever to come to the UK.
The eyes of the world will be again be on Wales later this year in the Rugby World Cup - where no doubt our sporting heroes will do Wales proud.
Our best years are ahead of us - Happy St David’s Day! Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus
