 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Impact of COVID-19 on the automotive industry and its transformation

Having completely frozen production, the automotive industry, a strategic industry for many countries, including Spain, is undoubtedly being severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. What is more, the rapid advances towards electric mobility and the carbon emissions reduction goal have resulted in a series of legislative, technological, cultural and economic changes, which, in turn, have resulted in changes to the sector’s value chains.

Commissioner Thierry Breton announced that the Commission was allocating 10% of the proposed recovery fund to the automotive sector. Some funds would go to recovery itself and the rest to transforming the sector to enable it to handle the new challenges, including energy transformation and digitalisation.

1. Does the Commission take that view that, given the situation, the proposed amount will be enough for all companies to recover and overcome the transformation challenges that they are facing?

2. What other measures could be taken to help their recovery and ensure that the new public funding policy does not lead to unfair competition between the Member States?
