'2017 will be another year of big challenges for Wales,

0:00:090:00:13

'as we start the negotiations to leave the European Union.'

0:00:130:00:16

Look, there's uncertainty over Brexit,

0:00:180:00:20

but we want the best deal for Wales.

0:00:200:00:21

That means Wales' voice has to be heard both in the UK

0:00:210:00:25

and in Europe and we need to make sure that

0:00:250:00:27

the deal is good for Wales.

0:00:270:00:29

We're going to leave the EU, that doesn't mean, of course,

0:00:290:00:31

that we don't have any role in making sure that Wales gets

0:00:310:00:34

the best deal possible, and that's exactly what we'll be fighting for.

0:00:340:00:37

'It is vital that we not only keep our promises,

0:00:380:00:42

'but also take every opportunity to build on our successes.'

0:00:420:00:46

Keeping promises - that's what it's all about.

0:00:460:00:48

Between 2011 and 2016,

0:00:480:00:50

we kept all the promises that we made at the election in 2011,

0:00:500:00:54

despite the budgets that we had being subject

0:00:540:00:57

to cuts year after year after year.

0:00:570:00:59

That's the way you gain people's trust.

0:00:590:01:01

£100 million extra for schools to raise standards,

0:01:010:01:04

100,000 new apprenticeships for people of ALL ages,

0:01:040:01:08

30 hours of free childcare a week for families -

0:01:080:01:12

we know the pressures that families are under.

0:01:120:01:14

A new treatments fund in the NHS

0:01:140:01:15

so that people with life-threatening illnesses

0:01:150:01:17

will get access to the medicine and the treatments that they need.

0:01:170:01:20

A new rate relief scheme for businesses,

0:01:200:01:23

a permanent one this time around,

0:01:230:01:24

to help small businesses to grow and prosper in the future.

0:01:240:01:28

And for older people, those who have to go into care,

0:01:280:01:31

we're doubling the capital limits

0:01:310:01:33

so they can keep more of the money that they earned.

0:01:330:01:35

And there are other challenges for us.

0:01:350:01:37

We want to make sure that our youngsters

0:01:370:01:39

have the digital skills they need for the future,

0:01:390:01:41

we're going to create a Welsh Development Bank,

0:01:410:01:44

and, of course, look at ways of helping creative industries,

0:01:440:01:47

so important now in the modern Welsh economy.

0:01:470:01:50

And we're also going to create a million Welsh speakers by 2050.

0:01:500:01:55

Ambitious, but doable.

0:01:550:01:56

Very soon, we know that Wales and the UK will begin

0:02:000:02:03

the negotiations to leave the European Union.

0:02:030:02:06

Look, we're not going to lock the doors

0:02:160:02:18

against doctors and nurses who bring their skills into Wales,

0:02:180:02:21

we're not going to shut up shop against people who come here,

0:02:210:02:24

students who pay as students and who contribute to Wales.

0:02:240:02:28

We welcome all those people who come to our country who are going to

0:02:280:02:31

make a contribution to our economy and our society.
