- Attraction of investments into the agricultural sector of Kazakhstan;
- Fruit and vegetable business in Kazakhstan: the impact of COVID'19 and overcoming the crisis.
The discussions were attended by representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and regional akimats, industry associations and unions, domestic agricultural producers and businesses.
In the new realities, investment is vital for the modernization of the national economy, as it allows to overcome the existing crisis in the development of regions, to ensure financial stability by raising and expanding existing production, to actively participate in solving various social problems.
Investments in the agro-industrial complex aimed at obtaining a quality product will have a multiplier socio-economic effect: increasing employment and income levels of the population, increasing the competence of local farmers and entrepreneurs, expanding sales markets, and improving the competitiveness of local products.
Speaking about measures to support agriculture by the state, it should be noted that the agrarian sector is becoming a state priority, which, in turn, can contribute to increasing the investment attractiveness of the agro-industrial complex. Attracting not only the state, but also large companies is not only attracting direct investment, but also the transfer of technology and managerial experience, an increase in labor productivity, access to foreign markets and integration into global production chains.
In addition to the processing sector, Kazakhstan has great potential in the development of greenhouse facilities. It is interesting both as an export destination and in terms of meeting the domestic needs of the population during the off-season.
