Information For Welsh Businesses

Part of the UK, Wales is a country that has retained its unique cultural identity. An officially bilingual nation, Wales is rich in culture and natural resources, making it a desirable place to live, study and work in.

In 2017, the total number of active businesses in Wales was 102,890. Business birth rates are above the average of the UK at 13.7% compared to 13.1%. What’s more, the 5-year survival rate for enterprises born in 2012 and still active in 2017 in Wales was 44%, again above the UK average.

Over the last couple of centuries, Wales has transformed from a predominantly agricultural nation, to heavily industrial, through to post-industrial. In the 1920s, over 40% of the working male population worked in heavy industry.


Cardiff is Wales capital and largest city. Once the largest coal exporting port in the world, it is now the principle finance and business centre in the country, accounting for 20% of Welsh GDP. A main vehicle of growth for the Welsh economy, Cardiff is a tourist centre and ranks 6th in the world for National Geographic’s Alternative Tourist Destinations.

The city has seen major development over the years – from Wales Millennium Centre to the Senedd Building for the Welsh Assembly – Cardiff is a hub for government, business, higher education, media and culture.

Wales is well-connected and offers easy access to the rest of the UKs business hubs. You can get to London in just 2 hours from Cardiff, and just over 3 hours from Wrexham. Cardiff airport offers over fifty routes to key international destinations, including Dublin, Paris and Amsterdam.

In 2018, Lloyds named Cardiff the ‘UK’s Talent Capital’, and for good reason! Wales is full of tech graduates brimming with ambition. The National Software Academy enables its students to work on live industry projects one day a week.

The Welsh Government has played a huge part in strengthening the economy. Since 2011, their funding has supported over 185,000 across Wales and pushed unemployment to its lowest level.
