The rise in global food prices to 3.7% has had an impact on the market for custom duty
Geneva, Russian Sputnik news Agency - The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) released a report on the 28th that higher global food prices and charter prices will lead to a 3.7 percent rise in food prices.
The military action inside Ukraine has hampered trade and logistics in Ukraine and throughout the Black Sea region, the report said. The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development noted that grain prices and transportation costs had been rising since 2020, but military action in Ukraine exacerbated the trend and reversed the temporary drop in transportation prices.
"Between February and May 2022, transportation prices for bulk commodities such as grain increased by nearly 60 percent," the report said. Simultaneous increases in grain prices and freight costs would lead to a 3.7 percent increase in global consumer food prices."
The UN Conference on Trade and Development added that Russia is a major exporter of fuel and fertiliser on the global market, commodities that are key resources for farmers around the world. Disruptions to fuel and fertiliser supplies could lead to lower food production and higher prices, with serious consequences for global food security, particularly for vulnerable countries dependent on food imports, the document notes.
The situation has also been exacerbated by rising energy prices.
The UN Conference on Trade and Development said: "As of June 2022, the global average price of low-sulfur fuel oil has increased by 64% since the beginning of the year. The combination of these increased costs means that consumers have to face higher prices, which has the potential to widen the poverty gap."
Unctad identified the opening of Ukrainian ports to allow access to foreign markets for Ukrainian food as a top priority, as well as increased investment in transport services and the simplification of trade and transit procedures.
