Not only it [coronavirus] has severely affected trade and business activities of the country, but also it has influenced the global trade significantly.”

Turning to the closure of borders of various countries on each other as a result of outbreak of coronavirus, he added, “these measures will definitely reduce travels and will also lead to the decreased volume of trade activities in the world.”
