It really affect remote area to purchase commodities like fruit, vegetables because they are in saving mode to keep survive. How we can make sure they still get a good and healthy food while in this hard situation? How local government, NGO's, local retail could collaborate to make things work? Thank you

Are you going to present a new estimation for the impact of covid-19 and oil price war on MENA countries for the rest of the year 2020? Evolution of barrel price? as volatility is the norm now... It will be nice to see impacts of the crisis on importing vs. exporting countries with oil & gas companies reducing costs (capex and opex) and so reducing investments and directly impacting projects... Thanks
