The dependence of a number of world countries on wheat imports from Russia and Ukraine led to serious challenges and the threat of starvation for millions of people in Africa. That is the reason for the successful efforts of the international community to extend the Grain Export Deal ~ Bassel Salah Mustafa Ahmed
Despite the unprecedented consecutive crises confronting the world since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, no one should lose optimism in the ability of the countries and peoples of the world to address these challenges. In order to peacefully overcome the current crisis, the countries of the world need more mutual collaboration through the showing of solidarity and working in the interest of the people. Egypt, like many other countries, has been hit by the world crisis and has resorted to adopting monetary and economic countermeasures to the growing inflation and other consequences of the crisis, among them negotiations with the IMF. Egypt is also exerting efforts aimed at achieving security and stability in its regional surroundings and the world, as well as efforts to strengthen bridges of cooperation between African, Arab and European countries, among them Serbia, as the potential for economic cooperation is enormous.
The Ukraine crisis showed the world the importance of diversifying sources of strategic resources. The dependence of a number of world countries on wheat imports from Russia and Ukraine led to serious challenges and the threat of starvation for millions of people in Africa, for example. That is the reason for the international community’s successful efforts to extend the Grain Export Deal. On the other hand, the energy supply crisis represented an incentive to accelerate the transition to sustainable, renewable and low-emission sources of energy, in conjunction with the latest Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework on Climate Change Convention COP27, which was held in Egypt in November 2022. COP27 contributed to putting the world on the right track to building a better future for coming generations. As we enter a new year, the whole world has aspirations to achieve peace and stability, and to solve the most serious challenges in the interest of all citizens of the world.
