WTO looks for alternative to June Kazakhstan meeting due to coronavirus

GENEVA, March 12 (Reuters) - The World Trade Organization has concluded that holding its planned ministerial in Kazakhstan in June is no longer feasible in light of the coronavirus pandemic and will look into alternative plans.

The WTO's Director-General Roberto Azevedo heard from the Kazakhstan government on Thursday that the WTO's members should "revisit" its plans to hold the meeting in the country's capital Nur Sultan on June 8-11. (Reporting by Philip Blenkinsop; editing by Robin Emmott)
