Immigration plans for the UK after Brexit will "stifle" the Welsh economy according to new analysis by Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Wales.
The proposals currently under consultation could restrict businesses from employing overseas workers who earn less than £30,000. A CBI report published today suggests the salary threshold could cause "severe difficulties for Welsh businesses.
According to the study, 58% of workers in the Welsh manufacturing sector earn under the £30,000 threshold - with more than a quarter of those are EEA nationals.
The report authors suggest the sector will be "particularly impacted" by current plans.
Mr Price added: "We know that Welsh businesses are creating jobs, but many are already struggling to fill vacancies and suffering from skills shortages."
