Toyota has today announced plans to build the next generation of its Auris hatchback in North Wales.
The Japanese carmaker has also announced that its Deeside factory will build most of its engines.
The move secures the future of more than 3,000 jobs across the UK.
Commenting, Shadow Economy Secretary, Russell George, said: "This is great news for the North Wales economy, and a timely vote of confidence in Toyota's engine plant workers at the Deeside Factory.
"Coming at such a sensitive stage in the Brexit negotiations, this announcement is even more significant.
"This decision safeguards around 3,000 jobs across the UK and Toyota is the latest in a line of big carmakers to commit to building more cars in the UK since the referendum."
