The forestry industry (has met and continues)/(has met and will continue) to meet the growing changes required to stay competitive within a rapidly transforming economy.

Should it be "continues" or "will continue"? I think both makes sense, so does it depend on the context, or is one of them wrong?


Both are correct. In my opinion, the continues version would be used in a reporting scenario, where the reporter is informing us of the current state of affairs in the forestry industry. The will continue version would be used in some kind of statement or speech from the forestry industry itself, emphasizing their commitment to maintain their competitiveness going forward.
