WTO Director General discusses economic recovery amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General, Roberto Azevêdo, has addressed the heads of WTO member delegations emphasising that ‘keeping markets broadly open to trade’ would help build ‘a post-coronavirus (COVID-19) economic recovery that is strong, sustainable and inclusive.’ Azevêdo confirmed that members’ policy choices would play an important role in forming the basis for a return to growth and job creation and that the pandemic’s growing economic and social impact would shape the context for the WTO’s work for the foreseeable future.
