Video: We need a blue growth strategy for areas like Anglesey

During this week’s First Minister’s Questions, Ynys Môn AM Rhun ap Iorwerth asked:

“I’d like to turn to the economic viability of coastal communities in Wales as part of a blue growth strategy, if you like. In its recent report on the potential of the marine economy in Wales, the Enterprise and Business Committee, of which I’m a member, called for a clear strategy in this area to include energy initiatives, environmental tourism, transport, and so forth. Does the First Minister agree with our impression, as a committee, that this Government’s response to developing the marine economy has been patchy and fragmented, and that there isn’t adequate evidence of action taken comprehensively as a Government, which is crucial in entirely coastal areas, such as my constituency of Anglesey?”
