Announcing the new line-up, First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones said: “I am delighted to introduce the team who will be taking Wales forward over the next five years. They will have a central role to play in delivering our priorities and leading and directing the work of the Welsh Government on behalf of the people of Wales.

“As I said in my statement to the Assembly yesterday, this will be an open, inclusive, and transparent administration, ready to work with others where it is in the national interest.

“A critical 5 years lie ahead. My relentless focus, and that of my Cabinet and Ministers, will be on driving improvement in our economy and in the vital public services that the people of Wales rely on every day.
