"Grain&Maritime Days 2022 in Istanbul", Turkey, Istanbul

2022 was a year of dramatic changes in the global food and grain market, primarily as a result of Russia's military invasion of Ukraine. The war in Ukraine has affected all sectors of the global economy, including energy, finance, agriculture, logistics, and more. The reduction in export supplies and the disruption of supply chains have jeopardized food security in countries most dependent on Black Sea grain imports. Together, Ukraine and Russia exported about 30% of all wheat and about 18% of corn in the world. According to analysts, more than 400 million people in the world depend on grain supplies from Ukraine alone. And the risks Ukraine faces during the 2022/23 sowing campaign further increase the tension on the global market.
