WASHINGTON (Reuters) – World Trade Organization Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said on Thursday that trade has been more resilient than expected during the coronavirus pandemic and is forecast to grow 8% this year, helping to support a recovery in economic growth.

“Trade, we hope, can contribute more,” Ngozi told an economic forum during the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings.

“First, by making vaccines, more available, by lowering export restrictions, working with manufacturers to offer volumes and getting more of the vaccines around the world. And secondly, I think a strong multilateral trading system can contribute so much to the international recovery.”
