The elections two weeks ago will impact policies around construction and important infrastructure choices. The shape of the Welsh Government is more important than ever.

Carwyn Jones has successfully been re-appointed as First Minister of Wales, following talks with Plaid Cymru to end a week of deadlock in Cardiff Bay.

He will form a minority government following the Queen's approval.

The basis of the agreement between the two parties, a Compact to Move Wales Forward, is the establishment of three liaison committees on finance, legislation and the constitution.

Carwyn Jones told AMs that his government priorities for the first 100 days includes policies on childcare, apprenticeships and increasing the number of GPs. The First Minister also announced a commitment to creating a National Infrastructure Commission and a Welsh Development Bank.
