Ports across Wales have been invited to bid for a share of £2m in Welsh Government funding.
The new Ports Development Fund is designed to support the growth of Welsh ports, helping ensure they continue being a key contributor to economic growth and providing opportunities for new jobs within the industry.
Bids are invited for projects which promote streamlined and sustainable intermodal freight systems, and develop new and existing tourism opportunities.
Economy minister Ken Skates said: “It’s clear that continuing and improving links both within Wales and internationally is as important today as it has ever been, and our ports play an important role in this regard.
“We want to see our ports continue to contribute on a local, regional and national level, helping drive a more prosperous and united Welsh economy and I’m delighted to announce this new fund today, which will see our ports come forward with proposals for how best they would use public funding to achieve this.”
