Commenting on the Welsh Government announcement not to back the Circuit of Wales, Liz Maher, President of the South Wales Chamber of Commerce said:
“While this will be disappointing news for Ebbw Vale, we must recognise the difficult situation that the Welsh Government was in.
“Going forward we need a strategic approach to development in the Cardiff Capital Region, particularly focusing on how the Valleys can attract and benefit from investment.
“Communities in the South Wales Valleys have great potential to bring forward home grown businesses and attract investment. But they need the right business environment to flourish.
“The Welsh Government need to press on with the Metro and other transport improvements and ensure that businesses in the Valleys can access the skills and support they need.”
