The COVID19 crisis has underlined the fallacies of our system and the vulnerabilities of our industry and the need to rebuild sustainably by using the European Green Deal principles as a guide. The outbreak of COVID-19 is causing widespread concern and economic uncertainties for citizens, consumers, businesses and communities across the globe. Key industries such as automotive, energy, mechanical engineering, construction, logistics, transport, food sector, pharmaceuticals and many others are already facing capacity shortages and disruptions, not only in supply chains, but also in production and in the sales channel, which is affecting economic growth globally. Other industries such as tourism, horeca, cultural and creative sectors have seen their activities frozen.
