The G7 Group of leading global economies will work together to monitor supply chain issues.
Hanseler Rishi Sink chaired a meeting of finance ministers in Washington DC on Wednesday as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank meet in the US capital.
The UK has been hit hard by supply shortages, partly due to a shortage of HGV drivers, while epidemic restrictions and bad weather conditions have affected shipping in China and East Asia and around the world. There are severe effects.
The Treasury said Mr Sink “emphasized the importance of global co-operation in ensuring that the supply chain is more stable as the world emerges from an epidemic.”
Speaking after the meeting, Mr Sink said: “Supply chain issues are being felt globally – and finance leaders around the world must work together to address our common challenges.
“Today we collectively agree to work closely together in the coming months – and together we will build a strong and resilient recovery.”
Motorcycle and buyers in the UK were urged not to buy fuel and supplies until the end of September as a shortage of lorry drivers affected supply.
Ministers faced pressure to relax immigration laws as an emergency measure to attract HGV drivers from abroad, amid warnings that the industry needed 100,000 more.
Problems with the supply of petrol, problems in the food industry and rising gas prices have led the government to warn of a “winter of dissatisfaction.”
A combination of factors, including Brexit, which harms EU drivers, the prevention of driving tests and systemic issues in the pay and conditions industry have led to a shortage of qualified HGV drivers.
