First Minister, Carwyn Jones AM, has described the decision by Japanese electronics company, Hitachi, to buy the nuclear power project Horizon, as "very good news" for Wales.
According to Hitachi, between five and six thousand jobs could be created during construction and a thousand permanent posts when it is up and running.
The First Minister says the move will help to "secure our energy supply in the future."
This is very good news for Wales and the UK. The potential benefits of a new nuclear development on Anglesey would be substantial - not just in creating thousands of highly skilled jobs and boosting the supply chain - but in helping to secure our energy supply in the future.
