KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 — Malaysia has postponed a three-day meeting of finance and central bank officials from Apec countries that was scheduled to start today because of the coronavirus outbreak, a government spokeswoman said.

“The decision was made as a measure to protect the safety and health of all delegates as well as the secretariat,” the spokeswoman said in a statement, adding no new date has been set yet.
