Kazakhstan plans to increase labor productivity in the agro-industrial complex and export of agriculture products at least by 2.5 times within 5 years.
"Our farmers have learned how to grow various crops, produce grain. We are proud of this. But this is not enough," said the president of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in his annual message to Kazakh people.
Nazarbayev stressed the need to support agricultural cooperatives, as well as to encourage people who effectively use and take measures to inefficient users.
The reorientation of ineffective subsidies, with further reduction of the cost of bank loans for agribusiness (agro-industrial complex) subjects was mentioned by the Kazakh president as one of the key measures.
Nursultan Nazarbayev also instructed relevant structures to develop agrarian science. Universities in the country, according to the president, should not just issue diplomas, but become centers for the dissemination of advanced knowledge and best practices.
