Business Minister: Economic situation still 'challenging'

Unemployment in Wales might have fallen, but Business Minister Edwina Hart says the economic situation here remains 'challenging'.

The poor performance of the global economy, together with spending cuts imposed by the UK Government, mean our economic prospects continue to be very uncertain.

Whilst the UK Government holds all the major macroeconomic tools, the Welsh Government is doing all we can to help people back into jobs or training.

– Edwina Hart AM
