On Wednesday April 29th at 15.00 UAE time, there will be a free to join 1 hour webinar focusing on whether our supply chains can cope with the current quarantine conditions.

During the 2007/8 crisis The World Bank blamed export restrictions for price increases of between 30% for rice and 45% for wheat. Is this a sign of things to come? We are already witnessing countries restricting major export commodities, significant logistics challenges and big increases in freight and shipping costs.
