At a press conference in the press center of the Government, Minister of Agriculture Saparkhan Omarov spoke about the implementation of measures for the development of agriculture as part of the fulfillment of the Head of State’s instructions given at the XVIII Congress of the Nur Otan Party.

The Government, akims and maslikhats were instructed to select promising villages, develop their social sphere and build boarding schools. Villages must become the points of growth and sustainable development. Therefore in the villages it is necessary to promote production business, processing of agricultural products, etc.

Within the framework of the special project “Aul – El Besigi,” 1,500 settlements that have certain prospects will be identified. Thirty billion tenge will be allocated annually, and over three years this amount of financing will reach 90 billion tenge. The funds will be used to develop engineering and communication infrastructure in the villages, social facilities, etc.

In general, speaking about the development of agriculture as a socially important sector that creates new jobs, Omarov noted that the State Program for the AIC Development was updated on behalf of the Head of State. The key tool of the program is anchor cooperation and the creation of a value chain.

“Now the state gives everyone the opportunity to create a family farm, become a member of the meat or milk conveyor and receive a steady income. The farmer leases 500 hectares of pasture and contains 50 cows. Cattle, machinery, residential trailer for the shepherd will be available through a loan for 15 years at 4% per annum. Such farms will become the core of the program,” said Omarov.

Omarov also said that as part of the productive employment program, rural residents can receive microcredits for the implementation of business projects in the agro-industrial complex at a remuneration rate of no more than 6% per annum, with a term of up to 7 years. At the same time, the maximum loan is given for the development of anchor cooperation — up to 8 thousand MCI or 20.2 million tenge and in other areas — up to 2.5 thousand MCI or 6.5 million tenge. In 2018, 12,569 microloans for 44.7 billion tenge were issued, of which 9,115 loans were issued for the development of animal husbandry.
