About the event

ECG’s annual General Assembly was held as a webinar on 14 May @ 15.00 CET.

Although it was obviously no longer possible to hold our General Assembly in Malaga due to the current COVID-19 crisis the meeting nonetheless took place at the same date and time as originally planned (14 May @ 15.00 CET) in online format (webinar).

As always there were reports on the activities of the last year and updates on the ongoing work of the ECG working groups. Participants were invited to share their views on the work of the association through a series of interactive questions. Board elections and also those for the President and Vice-President went ahead as planned.


Within the framework of ECG Business Intelligence our business analyst gave a presentation on the effects of the Covid-19 crisis, both short and long term, on the European automotive supply chain with the title:

Coronavirus and beyond: European vehicle and supply chain outlook 2020-2030

ECG Business Intelligence provides an updated forecast for European vehicle demand and production across three business scenarios, including detailed figures and insights on the top five largest markets, for 2020-2030. The presentation will also provide insight on key supply chain and logistics ramifications that will have long-term impacts for the European vehicle logistics sector during and beyond the current global pandemic.
