During the pandemic, both exports and imports both went south in the month of May. Not just that, it is because of Covid-19 that the tensions between the U.S and China have rerouted back to the scene, which of course, is against their best interests.
Recently, exports stooped a whopping 3.3 percent and imports dropped 16.7 percent to $143.9 billion, reports suggest.

Things to take home about the impacts of Covid-19 on global market
• Covid-19 has shook the global market chains that bring together manufacturers across different countries.
• The Indian Fishing segment might bring more than $171,000 because of the fall in fares to China, as per Dalakoti.
• India trades 36 percent of its gemstones to China. The cancelation of four significant trades among February and April is probably going to cause an expected loss of $1.05 million to $1.3 million in business for the city of Jaipur alone.
• Jaipur, popular for its gems, is the capital and the biggest city in Rajasthan.
• China and India are expected to work out a system to lessen dupe at ports.
