Rural Wales must 'tap into' West Midlands, Ken Skates says

Close economic links should be forged between mid and west Wales and the West Midlands, according to Wales' economy secretary.

Ken Skates told BBC Wales there was "a great appetite" from both regions to work together for mutual benefit.

He wants an east-west economic axis, to "tap into the huge potential" of the Midlands tourism market, as well as promoting products.
