Dawn speaks to Jeremy Miles MS, Counsel General for Wales and Brexit Minister and Member of the Senedd for Neath, about actions that the Welsh government have been taking during lockdown in order to reconstruct the Welsh economy.

We face huge, unprecedented challenges in the near future and that journey should not rely heavily on a ‘back to normal’ approach. As the government works through the course of recovery, the approach will be commited towards social, economic and environmental justice under the Well-Being of Future Generations Act.

In May, Jeremy issued an invitation to people in Wales to share their thoughts on how the government should support future post-Covid recovery and reconstruction in Wales. To date, there have been over 1000 submissions sent to the dedicated mailbox. Submissions remain open and are encouraged to continue. Analysing and drawing on the ideas received is, and will be, a key part of recovery over the next few weeks and months.
