Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what new measures he is implementing to improve economic prospects in North-east Wales. [68354]

Mr. Hain

"Pathway to Prosperity—An Economic Agenda for Wales" was published last July. It contained a wide range of measures for modernising and raising the competitiveness of the Welsh economy including North East Wales. These include:

  • An Entrepreneurship Action Plan
  • Know How Wales
  • Millennium Bug Support
  • Strengthening Business Connect.

Numerous measures have been announced since that time, including:

  • A Business and Environment Challenge Scheme
  • Connect for a Better Business.

In future this will become the responsibility of the National Assembly.
