What is the total value of inward investment to Wales since May 2021?

Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language | Answered on 29/04/2024

Figures for inward investment to Wales are collated on a financial year basis. Since April 2021, we have recorded 150 investments into Wales from companies headquartered overseas and elsewhere in the UK, creating and/or safeguarding 12,226 jobs.

The associated capital investment for these projects is at least £1.8 billion; however, for reasons of commercial confidentiality, companies do not always disclose the capital investment value of investments, so this figure is a minimum rather than the whole value.
