Kazakhstan plans to export high quality frozen beef to China, the press service of the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan said in a message.
A protocol on inspection, quarantine and veterinary-sanitary requirements for beef exported from Kazakhstan to China was signed between the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan and the main customs office of China, during the visit of the Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev to China.
The protocol will allow the export of Kazakh frozen boneless beef to China.
"The next step will be to hold talks with the Chinese side on opening access for Kazakhstan's cooled beef and livestock to the Chinese market," the message said.
According to Kazakh state statistics, the country fully provides its internal market with beef and lamb, and now seeks to increase the export potential for these types of meat by increasing the number of livestock.
