Foreign trade firms get respite

FOREIGN trade firms in China will resume production capacity soon, while authorities are stepping up efforts to improve the business environment and reduce their burden, the Ministry of Commerce said.

Most foreign trade enterprises in China tend to start operation and shipping after the 15th day of the first lunar month, and the ministry is paying close attention to the situation amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, Vice Minister of Commerce Wang Bingnan said yesterday.

Departments and local governments at all levels are making precise policies to create a sound business environment and alleviate the burden on enterprises, he said.

The World Health Organization spoke highly of China’s epidemic prevention and control efforts and did not recommend overreactions such as trade and travel restrictions.

China is confident in and capable of eventually defeating the novel coronavirus epidemic, Wang added.
