Wales and the European Union
Through our offices in Cardiff and Brussels, we seek to:
- raise the profile of Wales in the EU
- influence EU-related policy development and legislation
- maximise the benefits to Wales of EU membership
- ensure that EU legislation is complied with in Wales
- raise awareness of EU issues in Wales.
As the Member State, the UK Government takes the lead in negotiations at EU level. It must consult with the Devolved Administrations to ensure that their views are taken into account when developing the UK line on EU issues.
A key vehicle for discussing EU-related matters at UK level are the quarterly meetings of the Joint Ministerial Committee on Europe which involve Ministers from the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations. These meetings ensure that the needs of Wales are represented in the development of the UK Government position on EU policy issues.
To support this work, Welsh Ministers attend EU-related events and Wales regularly hosts visits from EU representatives including Commissioners, Members of the European Parliament and ambassadors.
