In its latest report on the coronavirus pandemic, IACCM reveals the scale of impact on worldwide industry and commerce. In just two weeks, the percentage suffering moderate to severe effects on contract performance has jumped from 37% to 60%.

The full report with industry and geographic analysis is being issued to IACCM members later today.
