The First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, has said a "very positive and constructive discussion" has been held in Mumbai over the future of Tata Steel's UK business.
The Indian conglomerate's board is drawing up a shortlist of potential buyers, although "nobody has yet emerged as a front runner or front runners", added Mr Jones, who has been joined in India by the Business Secretary Sajid Javid.
His comments come as hundreds of steelworkers marched through Westminster to call on the government to save the industry.
What Tata have said is that they need to go through each bid in detail and I welcome that, and that of course will take some time.
What's important here is not to rush things. We need certainty, of course, for the workers in the plants in Wales, where we get to a position where we see a sustainable long-term future for our steel industry.
Tata don't want to let workers down. It is uncertain... but we'll continue to talk to Tata, continue to listen to other bidders who have come forward with a view to getting the right outcome for people.
