Not create unnecessary trade barriers, allow essential cross-border travel: G-20 trade ministers.
May 15, 2020

The G-20 trade ministers on Thursday endorsed short term steps such as emergency trade measures designed to tackle COVID-19 including export restrictions on vital medical supplies and equipment and other essential goods and services so that do not create unnecessary barriers to trade or disruption to global supply chains, and are consistent with the global trade rules.
 
In a statement issued after the virtual meeting of Trade and Investment Ministers of the G20, the grouping said it would 'encourage our governments to establish voluntary guidelines that would allow, in the event of a global health crisis, essential cross-border travel, including essential business travel, on an exceptional basis, in accordance with national laws and regulations, and without undermining efforts to safeguard public health'.
