What does the future of the steelworks in Dudelange look like?

Following the recent revelations by the Financial Times that Liberty Steel's parent group was involved in dubious financial practices, which could potentially deter new investors, DP member of Parliament Gusty Graas is asking the minister responsible how this could have an effect on the Dudelange steelworks and whether he shares the opinion of the unions that the state should intervene financially.

« Des révélations récentes du quotidien britannique « The Financial Times » notent des pratiques financières douteuses de la « Gupta Family Group Alliance », propriétaire de « Liberty Steel », qui pourraient abîmer considérablement la confiance d’investisseurs potentiels dans le groupe et réduire la capacité du groupe à se refinancer.

Au Luxembourg, les syndicats, quant à eux, témoignent également d’une perte de confiance dans le groupe, et déplorent que les engagements d’investissements dans les sites de Dudelange et Liège n’aient pas été respectés.

Dans ce contexte, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Économie :

– Selon Monsieur le Ministre, quel sera l’impact des révélations du « Financial Times » sur le site de Dudelange ?

– Monsieur le Ministre partage-t-il l’appréciation des syndicats qu’une intervention financière de la part de l’État luxembourgeois serait inévitable afin de garantir le maintien du site de Dudelange ?

– Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des précisions quant au progrès des négociations actuelles avec Liberty Steel ? »
