The Welsh government has unveiled plans to invest more than £15 billion on capital projects such as new roads and schools over the next decade.
The Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan for Growth and Jobs outlines the government's key priorities for major infrastructure projects and shows how they will finance them.
It focuses on seven key investment areas, including transport, telecommunications, energy, housing, the NHS, education and enterprise zones.
First Minister Carwyn Jones claimed the government will take every opportunity to increase capital investment, despite the severe cuts in its budget.
"We want to create a Wales with a strong economy that has 21st century transport, IT and energy networks," she said.
"We want a low-carbon Wales with sustainability at its core and a skilled and efficient Wales where businesses thrive and our expertise are globally renowned. Through the plan we can make this happen."
Projects included in the plan include a £2.7 million overhaul of the M4 and £6.8 million to speed up work at major hospital projects in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and Llandough.
