The onslaught of Covid-19 is making an unprecedented impact on business and economy. The pandemic has upended global supply chain, international trade has plunged, and uncertainty looms large over nations. Despite the troubling rate of disruption, we believe that resilience, innovation, and adaptability can help businesses mitigate risks and thrive in these turbulent times. Perhaps most importantly, the coronavirus outbreak has highlighted the vital importance of smooth, efficient trade in getting essential goods to those who need them and in limiting negative impacts on employment and growth. Trade facilitation can play a significant role in turning the tide of Covid-19 adversity into opportunity.
