Let’s get Wales back on the world map

How refreshing to read Sion Barry’s article in the South Wales Echo (2nd January). We really must up our game if Wales is to grow in the future.

The lessening of our share of inward investment makes for very worrying reading, bearing in mind our positive position over the past few years. We must improve the ‘Welsh Offer’ to prospective investors, by improvements to our infrastructure, adopting a new city region approach to economic development and planning, and through a more proactive form of self-promotion.

This tiny nation has produced and nurtured so many world-renowned artists, businessmen, scientists, actors, politicians, writers, sportsmen, doctors, philosophers, engineers, teachers, broadcasters… I could go on! Wales may be tiny, but it is proud too. We must begin to make a conscious effort to tell others about how great we are, and how fantastic we can be.

We have something here in Wales besides a beautiful country. We have a people whose brilliance and work ethic is second to none.  What is needed now is a well-planned campaign making use of all the new and traditional media to make potential visitors and inward investors take notice and put Wales on their shopping list.

At the start of this new year, let’s start thinking bigger, and make Wales the envy of every other nation in the world.
