Wales World Wide officially launched today (26 September) to more than one hundred delegates of the Welsh business community at a breakfast event in Cardiff’s Park Plaza hotel.

Attendees joined the Wales World Wide team and members from NatWest, the official partner of the new venture, to discuss Wales’s online networking platform.

Chairman, Steve Howell, along with a panel of industry experts, led discussions on Wales’s business strengths, the far-reaching Welsh Diaspora and the benefits to Welsh business of harnessing those connections and the value in building “Brand Wales” to support and stimulate international trade.

Sitting on the panel was Haydn Thomas Regional Managing Director of NatWest, Owen Smith MP Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, Dan Langford Group Marketing and Communications Director Acorn and Graham Morgan Director of South Wales Chamber of Commerce.
