EU membership is vital to Wales, says Carwyn Jones
THE EU is vital to the UK's economic success, the First Minister has said following David Cameron's speech on Europe.
Yesterday, the Prime Minister made a landmark speech on membership of the EU and a future referendum. He said he wanted to negotiate the UK's position in the union, followed by an in/out referendum.
First Minister Carwyn Jones said: "Let me be clear — the UK and Wales's continued membership of the EU is vital for our economic success. It gives us access to the biggest single market on earth and Wales's membership is central to what we can offer inward investors.
"As we strive for economic growth following the deep global recession, anything that puts a question mark over our membership of the EU is a mistake. Such an uncertain future for the UK in Europe could put a break on potential inward investors. The last thing we need as a country is uncertainty.

"Governments of all levels should be focusing their efforts on the drive for jobs and growth, not engaging in renegotiations with Brussels. The inescapable truth is that as far as Wales is concerned, companies from outside of the EU establish a presence in Wales for the prime purpose of accessing the vast European market."
