The Geneva International Motor Show will go on as planned, its organisers said on Wednesday, after evaluating coronavirus developments.

The trade fair is slated to begin next week, but has seen some high-profile executives cancel their attendance.

“In view of the current situation, there is nothing to prevent the opening" of the show as planned, the organisers said.
