The French government has created a program to support a new regional aircraft to be delivered by 2030, within a $15 billion budget.
"The government has also outlined the creation of a new highly-efficient regional aircraft – using either hybrid electric or hydrogen technology – to enter service around 2030, following a demonstrator in 2028."

Tough call for EMBRAER if it has to compete head-to-head with Airbus big bucks on the regional market...
No way. Such an explicit subsidy action only makes it easier for Brazil to financially support Embraer in projects such as Advanced Turboprop as well as a competitor to the A320 / 321 family.
