My family and I are committed to the development of our businesses in Wales. Fully implemented, we will invest hundreds of millions to bringing the steel plant and renewable energy park to their full potential generating much needed growth and employment for the region. The added benefit is that our developments will utilize technologies that will help to clean up the environment.
