Economy boosted after 1,100 jobs created across Wales

More than 1,100 jobs have been announced by six companies across Wales.

It includes 700 posts at accountancy firm Deloitte after hopes were raised in September that it would expand in the new Cardiff enterprise zone.

In Torfaen, Griffin Place Communications will create more than 300 jobs at a new call centre in Cwmbran.

It comes on the eve of an international investment conference in Newport.

One firm announcing 30 new jobs on Thursday was SPTS Technologies, a research and development company in Newport.

But as BBC Wales economics correspondent Sarah Dickins explains - sometimes it is the quality of the jobs that is most important, not the quantity.
