Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones was very happy to sign the UK Steel Charter today at the National Assembly for Wales. The initiative from the steel sector is aimed at maximising opportunities for the UK economy and UK steel producers by encouraging procurement of steel for major projects.
As part of its commitment to the UK Steel Charter the Welsh Government has committed to require the origin of all steel used in future Welsh Government projects to be provided; advertise clearly all future opportunities for the supply of steel in Wales; engage early on in projects with steel producers and supply chains; appoint a ‘UK Supply Chain Champion’ to manage engagement with the steel sector and stipulate British steel standards within project requirements.
Mr Jones said “ I am proud to sign the charter and show my support to ensure a sustainable industry for Wales”.
