How not to sell Wales to the world…

First Minister, Carwyn Jones, has been criticised by Welsh Conservatives for an “unforgivable betrayal” of the Welsh people.

Mr Jones is in America to ‘sell Wales to the world like never before’, but has come under fire from the Welsh Conservative Leader – Andrew RT Davies – for using a keynote address to highlight tensions over Brexit, and to warn of dangers to the future of the United Kingdom.

 

Carwyn Jones has taken the trip to America to highlight Wales as an attractive destination for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), but faces criticism for the venue of his sppech which stokes fears over the constitutional future of the UK.

 

Responding to the speech, Mr Davies said:

 

“There is a time and a place to discuss constitutional issues, but Carwyn Jones is supposed to be in America to sell Wales to the world like never before.

 

“Instead, in a speech that came straight out of the Nicola Sturgeon playbook, the First Minister chose to talk down the economy and to stoke greater uncertainty over the future of the United Kingdom.

 

“It’s an unforgivable betrayal of the people of Wales and can only harm prospects for inward investment.”
