PETALING JAYA: The crisis in Ukraine and sanctions on Russia have sent prices of grains and fuels soaring.
This has not only hampered the prospects of the global economic recovery as countries start to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, but also threatens to cause a global economic recession. What can Asian nations do?
