WTO economist Coleman Nee said: “the recovery of 2017 seems to be extending into the first quarter of 2018 at least, based on things like strong export orders, strong air freight and container shipping and other indicators. So, it seems like there hasn’t been any slackening of momentum.”
The WTO has forecast overall growth in world goods trade in a range of 1.4 per cent to 4.4 per cent this year.
