Providing for the recovery from the COVID-19 public health emergency represents the biggest challenge we have faced as a devolved government. This vital work will impact all areas of Welsh peoples’ lives; it will be profoundly important for public services, for the economy and society.

I have asked the Counsel General and Minister for European Transition to lead this essential work.

He will oversee the coordination of the work inside the Welsh Government to respond to the crisis and draw in expertise and experience from outside Government itself to ensure our preparations for future recovery are creative and comprehensive.

Further details about the work on the future recovery will be announced in due course.
