International trade buoyed by resumption of supply chains

18/09/2020 PNG

With a few exceptions, most countries saw international trade in goods continue to improve in June, July and August 2020 (for those with data available). However, it remained below pre-pandemic levels; with the exception of China, which is now back to 2019 levels. The resumption of supply chains boosted international trade, especially in North America’s automotive industry. See International Trade Pulse, OECD.
