Wales’ graduate brain drain unsurprising in the absence of a modern economy

A report by the Resolution Foundation has revealed that more graduates left Wales than arrived between 2013 and 2016.

It also showed that the proportion of graduates in jobs that do not require a degree was higher than other nations or regions.

Responding to the report – which can be read here – Welsh Conservative Shadow Education Secretary, Darren Millar AM, said:

“The best way to encourage graduates to stay in Wales is to have a successful economy, which enables them to apply the knowledge and skills they have developed as part of their studies.

“It should come as no surprise that Wales is experiencing a brain drain when the Welsh Labour Government is failing to deliver the dynamic, modern economy we need.”
