Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood will today launch her party's manifesto for the upcoming General Election, with a pledge to 'overcome threats and seize opportunities' as the UK prepares to leave the EU.

The manifesto, which takes the form of an Action Plan, focuses on securing the Welsh economy and safeguarding the future of key public services.

Plaid leader Leanne Wood says the stronger the team of Plaid Cymru MPs in Westminster, the stronger Wales' hand will be as negotiations to leave the EU get underway.

The Action Plan we will be unveiling today is a fully-costed, comprehensive set of proposals designed to withstand those risks.

At its heart is a commitment to securing a resilient Welsh economy and to safeguarding the future of our treasured public services. Be it on tourism, farming, higher education or jobs, we are determined to overcome the threats and seek out and seize upon the opportunities which may come with leaving the EU.

Plaid Cymru always has and always will be a strong voice for Wales in Westminster. Our loyalty is to the people who live here.

– Leanne Wood, Leader of Plaid Cyrmu
