Kazakhstan's domestic production will fully meet the country's demand for food, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Nursultan Nazarbayev.
“Kazakhstan is currently providing itself with high-quality food for two thirds and the nearest years we will provide for our food needs 100 percent. We are expanding export capacities of our agrarian sector, especially to make deliveries to the world markets, and not only grain but also meat. Our external trade turnover made $126 billion last year, which is 40 percent more than in 2010. The export made $88 billion. Over $21 billion were non-energy goods, which is a precedent for our economy,” Nazarbayev said at the meeting with the representatives of diplomatic missions.
