'Don't stop our policies'
THE long-term approach to economic growth must not be abandoned following wealth figures which suggest West Wales is poorer than some Eastern European countries, Plaid has argued.
The declining GDP relative to the European average comes despite billions of pounds being pumped into the region which includes Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Carmarthenshire.
Plaid's economic spokesman Alun Ffred Jones said it showed the importance of Government action to tackle deep-seated weaknesses in Wales's economy.
He said: "The Economic Renewal Programme, introduced by Plaid Cymru in government, moved away from the historic grant-dependent culture to a more sustainable, long-term approach to economic development. It is vital that this approach is not now abandoned in favour of short- term measures by the current Labour government."

A Welsh Government spokesman said GDP per head in the region had broadly kept pace with the UK as a whole.
