The following pages provide more information on the work that we undertake within Brussels, information on the events being held across Wales and information about Wales' relationship with the European Union Institutions.

Although Wales is not a Member State of the European Union, it plays an active role within the European policy process through the UK government's membership.

Our aim is for Wales to be a key player within Europe and an active participant and partner in the European Union.

We ensure the interests of Wales are voiced at a European level.  From our offices in Cardiff and Brussels, the European teams are responsible for:

  • responding to European Consultations;
  • ensuring that EU legislation is complied with in Wales;
  • raising the profile of Wales in Europe;
  • hosting Ministerial visits to Brussels and, equally hosting European Ministerial visits to Wales.

The European events team are responsible for raising the profile of Europe to the public across Wales including hosting quarterly European Forum events.
