Will the Cabinet Secretary provide a breakdown of the total cost of the Welsh Government's trip to the Gold Coast, and explain the outcomes of the trade discussion held during his trip?

Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport Answered on 19/04/2018

I was pleased to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the Commonwealth Games to promote Wales on the world stage.

 

A written statement about the visit was published on 16 April and can be found via the enclosed link:

It is too early to predict outcomes from the wide-ranging discussions I had with politicians and business people both on the Gold Coast and in Sydney.

 

Costs associated with my visit will be published in due course in accordance with the Ministerial Code commitment to publish annually costs of Ministerial travel overseas over £500.
