Plaid economy plan offers new WDA with 'private sector vigour'

A Plaid Cymru government would revive the Welsh Development Agency brand to attract more companies to invest in Wales, the party has announced.

Set up in 1976 as a job creation agency, it became part of the Welsh government in 2006 as part of a "bonfire of the quangos".

In 2012, MPs said that decision had "reduced Wales' visibility overseas".

Economy spokesman Rhun ap Iorwerth said Plaid would revive the name for a new public-private partnership.
