Title: Increasing Risk of Covid-19 in Global Economy: An Empirical Study in the Context of Top Exporting Countries
This study focuses on finding the impact of communicable diseases (including COVID-19) on global economic operations in top exporting countries. The study uses a fixed effect panel estimation technique for data analysis which was extracted from the World Development Indicators and Statistica 2020 for 12 years ranging from 2007-2019 for nine top exporting countries. The results authenticate the anticipated view that high-risk diseases significantly impact supply chain operations globally. At the same time, manufacturing and logistic industries are also found to be significantly impacting the global trade operations. These results implicate that the overall international trade and logistics will prosper by improving the manufacturing and logistics industries by coping with the risk of pandemic diseases. The governments by paying attention to the efficiency of the customs clearance process, competence, and quality of logistics services, and ease of arranging competitively priced shipments can significantly improve the export from the logistics industry. Also by increasing manufacturing and agricultural value-added healthier outcomes can be obtained in global supply chain operations from the manufacturing industry.
