2011 has already been a big year for Wales.

0:00:070:00:10

In March, the people of Wales expressed huge confidence

0:00:100:00:13

in the future of our country

0:00:130:00:14

by delivering an overwhelming yes vote in the referendum

0:00:140:00:18

and now we're producing Welsh laws -

0:00:180:00:20

laws made for the people of Wales by the people of Wales.

0:00:200:00:23

In May, you, the people of Wales,

0:00:230:00:25

also voted in the National Assembly elections,

0:00:250:00:28

and as a result, I now lead a Welsh Labour government.

0:00:280:00:31

A government which is determined to be standing up for Wales

0:00:310:00:34

in these difficult times.

0:00:340:00:35

So I want to thank you for the confidence that you've expressed

0:00:350:00:39

in Wales and in Welsh Labour.

0:00:390:00:41

However, there remain big challenges facing us all,

0:00:430:00:46

challenges made worse by these savage cuts

0:00:460:00:48

being imposed on Wales by the Conservatives.

0:00:480:00:50

We know the Tory cuts are hurting, but we also know they're not working.

0:00:500:00:55

They're not working for families and communities across Wales,

0:00:550:00:59

ordinary people who want jobs, to see growth in our economy

0:00:590:01:02

and police on our streets to keep them safe.

0:01:020:01:05

And that's why I'm determined that the government I lead

0:01:050:01:08

will play its part in helping businesses and workers

0:01:080:01:10

by creating the right conditions to help companies start and flourish.

0:01:100:01:15

That's why the government I lead

0:01:150:01:17

will make sure Welsh workers are equipped

0:01:170:01:19

with the right skills for the future.

0:01:190:01:22

Unlike the Tories,

0:01:220:01:23

Welsh Labour will always put fairness at the heart of our actions.

0:01:230:01:26

We'll ensure our NHS remains a truly national health service,

0:01:260:01:31

delivering the best specialist services in our hospitals

0:01:310:01:34

whilst strengthening the NHS in your local community.

0:01:340:01:38

Across the border in England, the Tories have forgotten

0:01:380:01:41

that quality of care must come first.

0:01:410:01:43

In Wales, I make this promise -

0:01:430:01:46

the NHS was made in Wales and it will be safe in Wales with Labour.

0:01:460:01:52

On education, we will take action to improve performance in our schools

0:01:520:01:56

and ensure our children have the best start in life.

0:01:560:01:59

The young people of Wales know

0:01:590:02:01

that Labour is on their side.

0:02:010:02:03

I know how crucial it is that my government delivers

0:02:040:02:07

on the promises that we've made -

0:02:070:02:09

to strive for the changes in health and education we all wish to see,

0:02:090:02:13

to focus on jobs and growth in the Welsh economy,

0:02:130:02:16

to equip our youngsters with the skills for the future,

0:02:160:02:20

to provide more and better-quality homes in Wales.

0:02:200:02:24

So I pledge that in the year ahead,

0:02:240:02:26

we'll focus on delivering on those promises

0:02:260:02:28

with energy and determination to make Wales a better place.

0:02:280:02:32

If you'd like to join us in that task, then join Welsh Labour today.

0:02:320:02:38

Together we can make it happen.
