Bids invited for Welsh port funding

[ April 25, 2017   //   ]

Economy Secretary Ken Skates has invited ports in the country to bid for a share of £2m of Welsh Government funding. The Ports Development Fund will support the growth of Welsh ports, helping ensure they continue being a key contributor to economic growth and provide new job opportunities. Skates said: “It’s clear that continuing and improving links both within Wales and internationally is as important today as it has ever been, and our ports play an important role in this regard. We want to see our ports continue to contribute on a local, regional and national level, helping drive a more prosperous and united Welsh economy.”
