Culture bid is backed.
Wales' second city has joined forces with neighbouring Carmarthenshire and Neath Port Talbot to win the prestigious prize - where the winning entrant gets a major tourism boost by hosting top cultural events.
Also in the running for the title are Hull, Dundee and Leicester.
Bids have also been put forward by Aberdeen, Chester, Hastings and Bexhill-on-Sea.
Mr Jones said: "From its National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, the miles of stunning Gower coastline, and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales in Carmarthenshire, there is no doubt in my mind that now is Swansea Bay's time to shine."
The winner will be announced in November.
