WTO Postpones First Meeting in Four Years Amid Covid Variant Concerns

WASHINGTON—The Entire world Trade Business has made the decision to postpone a ministerial meeting scheduled to commence Tuesday in Geneva, after dozens of nations restricted travel from southern Africa to stop the transmission of a new coronavirus variant.

The WTO attributed the postponement to freshly declared travel constraints and quarantine specifications in Switzerland and quite a few other European nations around the world, leaving quite a few delegates not able to travel. The group reported that the member nations around the world unanimously supported the determination.
