'Better jobs needed in rural Wales', farming union says
A Labour AM has called for an equivalent to the city deals struck around Cardiff and Swansea for rural Wales.
Eluned Morgan said a strategy is needed as a matter of urgency so rural areas can have the same kind of attention parts of urban Wales have had.
It is one recommendation in a wide-ranging report calling for a coherent rural economic strategy post-Brexit.
Ms Morgan is presenting the plan - including proposals for an independent rural commissioner - to Economy Secretary Ken Skates on Monday.
Brian Thomas, deputy president of the Farmers' Union of Wales, said "better, well-paid jobs" must come from any rural deal.
