We work with the Senedd to promote the profile of Wales globally and to develop international relations.
At the start of the Fifth Senedd in 2016 we suggested that a Cross Party Group for international affairs should be set up. The idea was met with enthusiasm and Rhun ap Iorwerth MS agreed to chair the group, with British Council Wales to act as the secretariat.
The Cross Party Group Wales International has continued into the Sixth Senedd and is now chaired by Heledd Fychan MS.
The CPG has discussed a wide variety of issues, including:
- Internationalising small businesses in Wales
- Higher education and international students
- Welsh diaspora
- International showcasing of Welsh arts
- Modern foreign language teaching in Wales.
