Welcome to Welsh Affairs, the virtual presence of the U.S. Embassy in the United Kingdom. These pages highlight the Embassy’s connections with the people of Wales in the areas of business, culture and education. We appreciate your visit.
Ties between Wales and the United States have always been strong, whether judged by distinguished individuals (such as the 16 signers of the Declaration of Independence and 11 U.S. Presidents who were of Welsh descent) or bilateral ties (currently approximately 180 American companies employ over 30,000 people).
