Providing real-time information on the trajectory of world trade according to the latest trends, WTO’s Goods Trade Barometer, in November, showed that the latest reading of 96.6 is a slight improvement compared to the previous reading of 95.7, yet it is still below the baseline value of 100. Indices for export orders, automotive products, and container shipping have provided stability since the latest reading. On the other side, indices for air freight, electronic components, and raw materials now have a negative trend. Additionally, the report indicated that the goods trade, which had increased by 3% in 2018, is predicted to rise by 1.2% at the end of this year. Also, the figure is estimated to increase by 2.7% in 2020.
