The Business Secretary Vince Cable will be at Celsa Steel in Cardiff today as part of a tour of Welsh businesses. He will be getting an idea of the range of Welsh businesses as he will also see the new drama village in Cardiff Bay and visited the Pontprennau shopping centre last night. He is now on the second day of a tour that began in Powys.

I was very impressed with what I saw in Llandrindod Wells. We met with companies right at the cutting edge of science and design. And the questions we had in the Q and A session showed the desire and potential for businesses to grow in this area. They also gave me some excellent ideas that I will take back to the Business department.

At Skye Instruments, which exports much of the environmental and agricultural monitoring equipment it makes in Llandrindod Wells, Mr Cable was asked to introduce a 'Made in Britain' logo for UK manufacturers.
