Many government functions in Wales are now the responsibility of the Welsh Government, which is based in Cardiff. These functions include Health, Local Government, Transport, Education, Economic Development, and European Funding. The Welsh Government also has a number of offices throughout Wales and has adopted a policy of relocating some of its services to regional centres. Welsh Government staff dealing with Holyhead Regeneration matters are now based as a new Welsh Government office for North Wales at Llandudno Junction.
Merger of Welsh Government Agencies
A number of Welsh Government controlled/funded agencies were absorbed into the Welsh Government structure in April 2006. These included the Welsh Development Agency (WDA), the Wales Tourist Board (WTB) and Elwa (Education Learning Wales).
