SYDNEY : Rio Tinto PLC said pandemic-related restrictions are affecting its mining operations from Australia to Mongolia, slowing iron-ore shipments, raising production costs and delaying projects.

The disruptions come as governments around the world grapple with the impact of higher commodity prices as the global economy bounces back from Covid-19 and spending on infrastructure rises.

Several countries in South America and Europe have recently raised interest rates to counter inflation concerns. Rio Tinto is the world’s second-largest mining company by market value, behind BHP Group Ltd., and is a major supplier of commodities to countries including China and the U.S.
