Jobs and growing the Welsh economy remain our number one priority, but we will also work tirelessly to improve the delivery of our public services.My commitment to do everything we can to stand up for the people of Wales, particularly in these challenging times, remains firm. That is why I have created a new portfolio dedicated to improving the lives of the poorest in our country, building strong communities and creating opportunities for all.
