Multi-million pound boost to support post-covid pledge

Wales will build a new future out of the coronavirus pandemic, providing £320 million towards the immediate reconstruction work.

Counsel General Jeremy Miles said although coronavirus is still very much with us, part of our response must be to prevent longer-term damage being caused by the virus, especially to younger people who could be the hardest hit.

The Welsh Government published Covid Reconstruction – Challenges and Priorities – which sets out 8 priority areas, including short and long-term actions, to help stabilise Wales as we continue to live with the virus and to make sure we're ready to rebuild once a vaccine or a cure has been found.

The priority areas were drawn up following an extensive conversation with the public and key sectors across Wales. #OurFutureWales received more than 2,000 responses.
