According to a BBC report, an extra £270m is to be made available to offer long-term financial help to businesses in Wales.

This assistance has been outlined in the Welsh government’s Economic Resilience and Reconstruction Mission. However firms that are given government support will be expected to reduce carbon use and be fair employers.

Deputy Minister Lee Waters said Wales must set out a “green, prosperous and a fairer” economic recovery from the pandemic.

Employers will be encouraged to show how their organisations are reducing their impact on the environment and promise permanent work.

“If businesses want support from the government they have to sign up to give something back as well – an economic and social contract which respects fair work, respects the environment and can harness and support workers mental health, I think that’s a fair deal,” said Mr Waters.
