Rishi Sunak appelle le monde à travailler ensemble sur les problèmes de la chaîne d'approvisionnement
Pandemic restrictions and poor weather conditions have affected shipping across the world.

The G7 group of leading world economies will work more closely together to monitor supply chain issues.

Chancelier Rishi Sunak chaired a meeting of finance ministers on Wednesday in Washington DC in the week when the Fond monétaire international et World Bank are convening in the US capital.

The UK has been hard hit by fears of supply shortages, partly due to a lack of HGV drivers, while pandemic restrictions and poor weather conditions have affected shipping in China and east Asia and had knock-on impacts worldwide.

The Treasury said Mr Sunak told the meeting of the “importance of global co-operation to ensure that supply chains are more resilient as the world emerges from the pandemic”.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Sunak said: “Supply chain issues are being felt globally – and finance leaders from around the globe must collaborate to address our shared challenges.

“Today we have collectively agreed to work closely over the coming months – and together we will build a strong and resilient recovery.”

Motorists and shoppers in the UK were urged not to panic buy fuel and goods towards the end of September as the shortage of lorry drivers hit supplies.

Ministers faced pressure to ease immigration rules as an emergency measure to attract HGV drivers from overseas amid warnings that 100,000 il en fallait plus dans l'ensemble de l'industrie.

Les enjeux de l'approvisionnement en essence, on top of problems in the food industry and rising gas prices, led to warnings the Gouvernement fait face à un « hiver de mécontentement ».

Une combinaison de facteurs dont le Brexit entraînant la perte de conducteurs de l'Union européenne, the pandemic preventing driving tests and systemic problems in the industry relating to pay and conditions led to the shortage of qualified HGV drivers.
