Global trade is set to contract by 5% in 2023 compared with last year, the United Nations trade body said on Monday, with an overall pessimistic forecast for 2024.

In its Global Trade Update, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) projected that commerce this year would amount to approximately $30.7 trillion.

UNCTAD attributed this contraction in global trade in part to an underperformance of exports from developing countries.
