Draft International Strategy for Wales published for Consultation

Draft International Strategy for Wales published for Consultation

Following a period of consultation earlier this year, Welsh Government have recently released their Draft International Strategy for Wales for consultation.

Following a period of consultation earlier this year, Welsh Government have recently released their Draft International Strategy for Wales for consultation.

Welsh Government are consulting on:

· their strategic direction and focus for international relations;

· their strategic goals and areas of expertise to promote Wales’ reputation and raise its profile;

· priority regional partners.

The initial consultation sought views on how Wales should present itself internationally, informing the development of this draft document.

Welsh Government originally intended to publish a final strategy document this summer. However, with the UK Government’s decision to postpone Brexit until 31 October, and the lack of clarity to the nature of the UK’s future relationship with the EU caused by the ongoing negotiations, the Welsh Government have taken the decision to use the feedback gathered during the last six months to produce a draft strategy for consultation instead.

Wales Arts International worked closely with the arts sector during the initial consultation period to offer an overview of the themes and issues raised and highlight topics that could be included in the strategy. It clearly set out ways to maximise the opportunity for the strategy to amplify a new ambition and approach, making sure that Welsh culture is fulfilling its international potential.

The Draft International Strategy for Wales is published online, with information provided on how to respond via an online form, by email or by post. This is a useful opportunity to have your say on the International Strategy, and we would urge companies and individuals across the sector to contribute to the consultation.

The deadline for responses is 23 October 2019.
