    Switzerland will likely meet the criteria for the country to
be identified as a currency manipulator by the United States in
an upcoming report from the U.S. Treasury, according to people
familiar with the matter.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2IP2TE
    Massive interventions by the Swiss National Bank this year
to slow the appreciation of the Swiss franc will mean
Switzerland will now satisfy all three criteria to be called a
manipulator, the sources said.

longer be halted due to concerns about the spread of the new
coronavirus, the Italian transport ministry said.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2IP2GZ
