Besides, Article 7(2) of this Convention allows customs to grant a longer period than that provided in the Annex and even extend the initial period. The Commission services have, in consultation with Member States, invited the EU trading partners facing such situations to inform the Commission whether they would be interested in making use of these exceptional measures. Member States have provided detailed information regarding how they are proceeding or plan trading coronavirus to proceed, with a view to ensuring coordination and mutual information exchange on such arrangements. As a result, the Commission has examined several ways to ensure the continuation of preferential trade for the duration of this extraordinary situation. In particular, the Commission services have looked into the possibility of accepting copies of certificates, as well as optimally using approved exporter status as an alternative to official certificates.

Bing (2021) shows that the positive feedback trading following negative returns during the COVID-19 period is much stronger. As the opening of financial market may bring great uncertainty to financial system stability of developing countries, the gradual and steady opening model has been adopted in Chinese financial market. The empirical results of this study show that the foreign investors play stabilization role during the market crisis. In other words, the openness of financial market helps to promote its healthy development. Therefore, after accumulating enough experience, the further opening measures, such as increasing the eligible stocks and relaxing the eligible investors, should be implemented.


In the remainder of this Comment, we present the case for making these decisions in a transparent and inclusive manner. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced governments to make difficult choices that profoundly affect the health, wealth and freedoms of their populations. To deal with the public health and economic emergencies generated by COVID-19, these high-stakes decisions have often been made quickly, with little involvement of stakeholders in the deliberation about which policies to pursue. Given the uncertain duration of the pandemic, and even as vaccines are in the process of being approved, there are important moral, legal and practical reasons to engage in open and inclusive decision-making processes. These include an improvement in the quality of decisions, an increase in legitimacy and trust, compliance with legal obligations and improved adherence to restrictions on behavior that are necessary to curb the spread of the virus. Such deliberative processes also respect people’s abilities to offer, appreciate and act on reasons and are required by human rights and rule of law principles.

A common finding is that the pandemic has negatively affected international trade flows, although the details of the results vary significantly across studies due to differences in the empirical approach, including the level of aggregation, the types of goods studied, and the data coverage. By encouraging a focus on high-impact reforms that could be quickly implemented, the crisis created an opportunity for Trade Foward to achieve something that it is often challenging for trade projects to deliver—immediate, visible impact. While the programme is still early in its implementation phase, many of its COVID-19-related recommendations have already been taken up by governments and donors. The FCDO, for example, committed to supporting the development of a web-based dashboard that will provide traders with real-time updates on policy developments. Based on our results, another possible direction for future research is to find suitable strategies in an active portfolio management context, based on the premise that processing value-relevant information can lead to abnormal returns.

I show that a large share of Spanish imports was sourced by importers that only had a single supplier country. Despite this dependence, Spanish exporters did not identify disruptions in the supply chain as a major factor that drove the decrease in trade flows. However, the large increase in demand for medical materials and equipment, and the fact that Spain already depended on imports before the COVID-19 crisis led to severe sourcing problems for these products during the first stages of the health crisis. Although there is no significant difference for the impact of net flows of foreigners and institutions on returns, the return’s response to buying and selling for these two groups is different. In the pre-COVID-19 period, the positive returns after the buying of foreigners and institutions suggest nothing for the timing ability in buying or the information advantage of the two groups. However, compared with the negligible return after the foreigners’ buying during the COVID-19 period, the returns after institutional buying are still positive, which reflects the good timing ability in buying of institutions.
