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, etc. 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.
The situation in Ukraine has launched a flywheel of global transformations in world trade, logistics, Black Sea shipping as well as in financial, legal and insurance fields, and we cannot stand aside.
The most pressing issues of world grain trade and logistics will be discussed within the international conference Grain&Maritime Days in Istanbul 2022 (Turkey, May 25, INTERCONTINENTAL ISTANBUL hotel).
