Carwyn Jones welcomes foreign investment high

First Minister Carwyn Jones has welcomed figures suggesting investment in Wales from abroad is at its highest for more than 20 years.

Statistics from UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) show 79 foreign companies invested in Wales in 2013-14.

Carwyn Jones said it showed that Welsh government ministers travelling abroad and "selling Wales" had worked.

Welsh Conservatives leader Andrew RT Davies welcomed the figures but said Wales was still "under-performing".

Carwyn Jones gave his reaction to BBC Wales reporter Rhodri Lewis.
