Мировая пандемия голода и пути ее преодоления

Молодыко К. Ю., Калимуллина М. Э.
Academic editor: Н. В. Андрианова

The coronavirus pandemic has led to an aggravation of the food situation in the world, even in previously prosperous countries. Russia has every chance of becoming a global player, not only supplying products for export, but also defining the international agenda on world agricultural markets, at least for grain crops. In practice, Islamic countries which are large importers of Russian wheat buy it through intermediaries from third countries, which get excessive margins. Instead of introducing export duties and quotas on grain, it is necessary to create an alternative pricing center that is a commodity exchange in Russia (perhaps even an interstate one), which could become a price reference point for food for the entire Eastern Hemisphere. Russia is now almost invisible on the world map of agricultural investments. The Gulf countries, which are actively developing their international investment agenda to address food security problems, can become a strategic investor in the Russian agricultural sector. They themselves are in dire need of food reserves, and also constantly provide assistance to poor Islamic countries, which could move into the format of delivering Russian food. The international market offers a variety of financing solutions for producers and entrepreneurs throughout the whole value chain. A number of such instruments may correspond to the principles of Islamic finance, which is gaining more and more popularity in the countries of the Islamic world, and in some countries of the Gulf already accounting for more than half of the assets of the financial market. These instruments can play a significant role in the development of Russian export potential. This monograph will be useful for the heads of government and management bodies that determine public policy in the field of food circulation, as well as scientists and practitioners working in the relevant field.
