Based on Covid-19 first analysis of impacts on the transport fuel sector, this presentation urged policymakers to act at two different timescales: 1) to provide support to meet short- and medium-term goals, such as assist fuel companies to overcome the collapse of demand and the economic shock, preserving direct and indirect jobs and business; and 2) provide support to meet medium- and long-term goals, such as to increase the ambition and promote higher amounts of domestic renewable and low carbon fuels, injecting economic resources on green domestic supply and conversion chains.
