International trade policy developments

06 July 2020

Stuart Harbinson |
The Coronavirus crisis has continued to dominate the global trade landscape in the past quarter, with the economic shutdown leading to plunging trade in goods and services. As countries try to unwind restrictions, the focus is on balancing the need for a rebound against the risks of a second wave.
Inevitably trade issues are often political in nature as well as being legal, economic and often highly technical. This is not meant to be political commentary on the developments covered and every effort is made to convey only facts and the possible or likely economic ramifications of the issues covered. Inevitably, some of you may differ on interpreting the political and economic causes, nature or consequences of the developments but the report endeavors to capture only the key facts and be objective in its analysis.
