WTO gives sombre outlook for global trade, sees virus threat

BRUSSELS, Feb 17 (Reuters) - Growth of global trade in goods is likely to remain weak in early 2020, the World Trade Organization (WTO) said on Monday, adding that the below-trend performance could be reduced even further by the new coronavirus.

The WTO said that, based on a decline of its trade outlook indicator, year-on-year merchandise trade growth may fall again in the first quarter of 2020. (Reporting by Philip Blenkinsop)
