JSC Kazagromarketing and IA APK-Inform invite representatives of grain business to participate in the International Grain Conference in Almaty city (Kazakhstan) on February 26-27, 2009.

Kazakhstan recent years is among the 10 key global grain exporters. According to Agriculture Ministry of the RK, in January-November 2008 Kazakhstan exported more then 6 ml t of wheat and flour. The Kazakhstan agrarian sector has considerable potential of development, able to influence in solving questions of global food security. According to FAO, Kazakhstan is already among the 26 countries of the world - the leading grain producers.

As for the export structure for this period the main users of the Kazakhstan wheat were Egypt, Turkey, Tunis, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Iran. Export direction of the Kazakhstan flour is Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan, Afghanistan.

Decreasing Kazakhstan export in 2008 against previous years is caused by a high crop of grains in Russia and Ukraine. But although export level in 2008 was lower high milling value of wheat remain the important competitive preference of Kazakhstan.

In 2008 the features of unique climate of Kazakhstan, allowing to grow a high-quality wheat, showed up to the utmost: 90% of wheat output is the high quality production. It helps to increase competitiveness of Kazakhstan grain in the world market.
