CBI yesterday responded to extra £93m investment in Wales at Budget.

Ian Price, CBI Wales Director, yesterday said:

“The Chancellor is committing to an investment in Wales’ green future with hydrogen and rail to the fore.

“Meanwhile, extra monies for the city deals will enable all parts of Wales to bring forward projects that will make a real difference to communities.

“The UK government has stepped in to support business throughout the crisis and many firms will be looking for much of that to be extended into summer. If the economy is to snap back into shape, then Wednesday’s Budget will also need to incentivise businesses to get spending on jobs, skills and innovation.”
