Economy Secretary Ken Skates has stressed that his priority is now to protect jobs and "maintain economic confidence" in post-referendum Wales.
Speaking ahead of his key note address at the Institute of Welsh Affairs he emphasised that Wales will continue to be an open, responsive and business friendly country.
Wales' economy has developed hugely over recent years and now boasts a strong international reputation as a place to come and invest.
Already this year announcements from Aston Martin, MotoNovo, TVR, Essentra, EE and BT have demonstrated our growing reputation as a magnetic country to locate to and trade from.
This is partly down to our open, responsive and business-friendly approach. We remain committed to this, to developing Welsh business and to working with new partners to draw in investment.
Post referendum my priority is protecting jobs and doing everything in my power to maintain economic confidence and stability.
