On March 26, G20 Leaders issued a statement that they should “work to ensure the flow of vital medical supplies, critical agricultural products, and other goods and services across borders, and work to resolve disruptions to the global supply chains, to support the health and well-being of all people.” The leaders also reiterated their “goal to realize a free, fair, non-discriminatory, transparent, predictable and stable trade and investment environment, and to keep our markets open,” and called on Trade Ministers to “assess the impact of the pandemic on trade.”
