Kazakhstan will export grain crops and import olive oil to Greece, QazMonitor reports citing the press service of the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan.

Ministers of agriculture of Kazakhstan and Greece – Yerbol Karashukeyev and Georgis Georgantas – signed the agreement during the Kazakhstan Global Investment Roundtable 2022.

The Kazakh minister noted that stable harvests and high-quality characteristics of domestic wheat contributed to Kazakhstan's position as one of the world's leading exporters of grain and flour.

"We are also ready to work on the supply of products of the flour and cereals industry, meat, vegetable oils and other types of processed and organic products,” Karashukeyev said. He expressed hopes that the signing of the document will give an additional impetus to the development of cooperation between the two countries in the field of the agro-industrial complex.

The Kazakh side also proposed Greek investors implement projects for the processing of agricultural raw materials, including meat and milk, potatoes, sugar beets, oilseeds, and fruits in Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan is currently interested in promoting cooperation and joint research between specialists and scientists in the field of training and scientific support of agribusiness.

In turn, the Greek delegation proposed to exchange technical information, know-how and experience, as well as to organize training programs, seminars and conferences in both countries.
