A senior economist at the World Trade Organization (WTO) has told Xinhua that China has been a growth driver for the world during the COVID-19 crisis, as the global trade watchdog's figures have confirmed the recovery of global trade after the deep shock.

The Geneva-based WTO said that in August, its global Goods Trade Barometer had hit a record high of 110.4 points, the highest since the indicator was first released in July 2016 and up by more than 20 points year-on-year.
