From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mid Wales (Welsh: Canolbarth Cymru or simply Y Canolbarth "The Midlands") is the name given to central region of Wales. The Mid Wales Regional Committee of the National Assembly for Wales covered the counties of Ceredigion and Powys and the area of Gwynedd comprising the former district of Meirionydd.[1] A similar definition is used by the BBC.[2] The Wales Spatial Plan defines a region known as "Central Wales" which covers Ceredigion and Powys.[3]

Mid Wales is dominated by the Cambrian Mountains, including the area sometimes referred to as the "Green Desert of Wales".[4] The region is sparsely populated, with an economy dependent on farming and small businesses.[5]
