Al-Qassabi hails measures taken by G20 Trade Ministers against COVID-19

Riyadh (UNA-OIC) – Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Commerce and Investment Dr. Majid bin Abdullah Al-Qassabi praised the measures taken by the G20 Ministers of Trade and Investment in their extraordinary meeting held in May, as critical for sustaining the flow of essential goods and services across borders and limiting the human toll of the coronavirus pandemic.
In his opening statement at the virtual G20 Trade and Investment ministerial meeting on Tuesday, Al-Qassabi said, “The Coronavirus pandemic has also inflicted serious damage on our economies and disrupted familiar patterns of trade and investment in significant ways. As Ministers of Trade and Investment, the measures we adopted in our extra-ordinary meeting in May were critical for sustaining the flow of essential goods and services across borders and limiting the human toll of the pandemic. Without such measures, medical professionals in many countries would not have been able to access pharmaceuticals and medical supplies necessary to protect themselves and save the lives of their patients.”
