Coronavirus may ruin the automotive industry. This sector depends on orders from foreign factories that have stopped production. Volkswagen has suspended work at the plants in Poznań, Swarzędz and Września, the PSA, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Renault factories are closed, Michelin has stopped production at the factory in Olsztyn, Toyota – closes the majority of factories in Europe, which are producing cars, engines and transmissions. These are just examples from the automotive industry, but also furniture factories, shipping companies and many others are not working.
In Italy, all workplaces are closed except those necessary for the functioning of the state. Meanwhile, the top four countries from which Poland imports the most are Germany, China, Russia and Italy. The supply of goods, including components for further production, must suffer in such conditions.
