On his visit to Airbus in Broughton and JCB Transmissions in Wrexham, the Secretary of State for Wales will be emphasising the importance of manufacturing to the economy.
The companies I am visiting today are centres of manufacturing excellence and are key employers in North Wales. Their successes reinforce how important it is to rebalance and rebuild manufacturing and engineering in Britain.
While Airbus and JCB are experiencing success at home and abroad, we are under no illusions about some of the challenges experience by other manufacturers in Wales.
