Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, global trade was already fragmenting courtesy of the US-China trade war.

Businesses were struggling with unpredictable tariffs and market volatility, and now contend with a pandemic that has forced countries to lockdown, ban travel, shut down manufacturing and is said to have caused the biggest drop in consumer demand since the second World War.
