Kazakhstan to introduce support measures for personal subsidiary plots
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 16
By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
Kazakhstan’s concept for the development of agriculture will include support measures for personal subsidiary plots, Trend reports with reference to Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Agriculture.
The concept of Kazakhstan’s national project for agro-industrial complex development will be ready by May 2021. A working group was established for its preparation.
The ministry of agriculture noted that personal subsidiary plots play too great of a role in the country’s agriculture development to not support it.
Thus, nearly 75 percent of overall milk production in the country accounts for personal subsidiary plots, however, due to the lack of logistics and centralized procurement, as well as issues related to storage, primary processing, provision of feed, and lack of working capital, only a small amount of products from personal subsidiary plots goes to processing plants.
To solve these problems the project for a large scale and effective increase of revenues of rural residents was launched in the country’s Zhambyl region. Currently, models for direct financial and organizational support for the creation of cooperatives through the participation of social-entrepreneurial corporations in them are being worked out.
The experience and developments in the Zhambyl region will be taken into consideration when developing the concept for the development of the agro-industrial complex.
