Steel industry comments

The CBI comments on the future of the UK's steel industry. 

Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General for policy and campaigns, said: 

“It’s clear that firms in our steel industry face major global challenges to stay competitive.

“Our industrial base can best be supported by developing a long-term industrial strategy, protecting research and development investment to help raise productivity and ensuring energy costs remain competitive.

“The Welsh and UK governments must work together, alongside businesses, to maintain and increase investment in Wales.”
