He also said that the virus has disrupted the supply and demand chain and affected the business ecosystem and Malaysia has to contend with uncertainties such as the fall of the prices of commodities.
Tengku Zafrul quoted the International Monetary Fund (IMF) saying that the global economy’s growth for 2020 will be at negative 4.4% and while global trade is estimated to be around negative 10.4%.
He said Malaysia is not alone in this as the economies of 150 countries worldwide have been affected by the virus.
