Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 13
By Elena Kosolapova - Trend:
Kazakhstan intends to enter capacious markets in the Southeast Asia, and to this end, it is reviewing the possibility of constructing a railway grain terminal on the border with China, the country's Agriculture Ministry told Trend Oct. 13.
"In order to develop an infrastructure for Kazakhstan's grain exports to China and Southeast Asia, the Food Contract Corporation JSC is reviewing the construction of a railway grain terminal near the Kazakh-Chinese border," the ministry said.
In 2014, the main volumes of Kazakh grain will be delivered to traditional importers, i.e. the countries in the Central Asia, as well as Azerbaijan, Iran and Afghanistan.
The Kazakh grain will be also exported to North Africa, the Middle East, the EU and China, the ministry said.
Sanctions against Russia are creating preconditions to increase the Kazakh grain supplies to the world markets, the ministry added.
