We recognise that global economic conditions continue to be challenging for the steel industry and are committed to?supporting a?productive, vibrant and modern steel sector?in the UK. That is why we recently worked to reach an agreement with Celsa which will save hundreds of highly-skilled Welsh jobs.

The Government has put together a far-reaching package of support to help businesses through the coronavirus pandemic. We continue to regularly engage with the steel sector about support mechanisms, especially in dealing with the economic impact of Covid-19.
