Food crisis matters a great deal. Basic nutriment prices are record high, and even though their growth has halted lately, the problem of famine and food prices still tops the agenda of many countries. For poorer states that import most of the nutrients it is particularly important. These problems require coordinated actions by world’s leading countries — Alexander Shokhin, President, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
Food security is a major issue. <…> Over 300 million people cannot access basic nutrients, not to mention good and healthy food. Geopolitics are not helping it either. We see what is happening to prices for fuel, meat, and oil. This deepens the problem, and we cannot see a way out right now, — Anastasia Mikhailova, Director of the Сommunications Directorate, Cherkizovo Group.
It is worse right now than it was in 2008 when the leadership of the group of twenty was formed. Global economy is on the low after the pandemic, inflation is rising all over the world, added value chains are broken – including production ones, logistical, transport. And this is happening against global climate change and energy markets’ transformation. <…> On top of that there are problems of mounting debt in both the poorest and the richest economies, which leads to further degradation of the quality of life — Svetlana Lukash, Deputy Head, Expert Department of the President of the Russian Federation; Russian G20 Sherpa.
