At the press conference in the Government’s press center, Vice Minister of Agriculture Gulmira Issayeva shared the results of the analysis of the main types of exported products to foreign countries in a regional context.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the bulk of exports of agricultural products fall on wheat and flour. The top group of processed agro-industrial products includes flour, which holds a share of 39.2% in total exports of processed products, vegetable oils — 9%, confectionery — 9%, fish fillets — 4%, and also baby food and dairy products — 2 % In addition, large amounts of cotton fiber — 6% and processed feed (millcake, bran, waste) — 4% are exported.

The main regions for the export of grain are East Kazakhstan, Akmola, Kostanay regions and the cities of Nur-Sultan and Almaty. Traditional markets for cereals are Central Asia, Iran, China and Afghanistan.

As Issayeva emphasized, Kostanay, Turkestan, North Kazakhstan, Akmola and Almaty regions most of all export flour to Afghanistan and Central Asia. Oilseeds are exported to Uzbekistan, the European Union, the People's Republic of China, Mongolia from the North Kazakhstan, East Kazakhstan, Kostanay, Akmola regions, and Almaty. Vegetable oil is mainly supplied to the PRC, Russia and Central Asia from Almaty, Nur-Sultan, Turkestan, East Kazakhstan and Karaganda regions.

According to Issayeva, the EAEU is also an important market for Kazakhstan, where 1.2 million tons for $490 million are exported. The Kostanay, East Kazakhstan, Turkestan, Almaty regions and Almaty are the most exported.

To another priority market for Kazakhstan — Iran — 1.8 million tons of Kazakhstani agricultural products worth $329 million are exported. Most of all, they export to Iran, Nur-Sultan and Almaty.
