UK and Welsh governments have reached a deal for two freeports in Wales.
This is a very good decision for international trade, for Wales, UK, the landbridge between EU-UK-Ireland-Norther Ireland.
Anglesey has secured freeport status in a move backers say will create thousands of jobs. In May 2022, the Welsh Government reached an agreement with the UK Government to estblish a freeport programme in Wales after a long stand-off over the levels of funding.
The island freeport around Holyhead was up against the Celtic Freeport in Milford Haven and Port Talbot and a multi-site freeport in south east Wales that included Cardiff Airport. Tonight it was confirmed that Anglesey and the Celtic Freeport had both been successful.
Yesterday Bruce Springsteen recieved the American National Medal of Arts from the hand of President Joe Biden, for his outstanding contributions to the American songbook, and….
….for ’being The Boss’. You can see the short ceremony here below. President Biden greeted Springsteen with the words, “Some people are just born to run, man” (for public office).
The National Medals of Arts is the highest honor from the United States government for advancing the country’s arts and it include actors, comedians and singers.
