Kazakhstan plans to increase grain exports
Kazakhstan has hiked its projection on how much grain and flour it expects to export this year by 10 percent, despite the country enduring a punishing drought in 2021.
The planned 7.3 million tons of deliveries during this marketing year, which began on July 1, is higher than the 6.5 million tons sold last year, but short of the 9 million tons Kazakhstan hopes to export next year, according to Agriculture Ministry.
The main markets for Kazakhstan’s grain are neighboring countries in Central Asia, China and, in good years, Afghanistan.
