Shanghai lockdown has global ripple effect, EU firms start to feel China’s shipping delay | DW News

Shanghai – China’s most populous city and commercial hub – has been in a strict lockdown for about a month. Residents are only allowed to leave their homes in a few parts of the city.

And while the port has been in operation, many exports are not leaving Shanghai because port workers and truck drivers, who transport the goods to and from the port are also affected by the lockdown.

Right now, around a third of the 1,800 container ships stuck in the world, are in or around Shanghai. The city’s hard lockdock is affecting global supply chains. Many companies, which produce in China, haven’t been getting their goods and parts for nearly three weeks. It takes between 5 and 8 weeks for these container ships to make it from China to Germany so businesses here and elsewhere in Europe, are just starting to feel the problems.

Meanwhile there’s a plan underway to isolate dock workers, in an attempt to keep the Shanghai port operational.

On the Frontlines of Rising Fragility: Collaborating and Innovating for Impact | WBG Spring Meetings

The World Bank Group has focused on scaling up its engagement in situations of fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV). The disturbing trend of rising and compounding crises points to an urgent need for the international community to come together and develop new and innovative approaches to support countries facing conflict and fragility. By 2030, up to two-thirds of the world’s extreme poor could live in FCV settings, so without addressing the challenges in these economies, we will not succeed in our mission to eradicate extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. This timely event will provide a platform to discuss how to stay engaged during times of crisis and meet the challenges in new and innovative ways, along with our partners.
