“An efficient instrument in provision of food security is development of stable functioning food belts around big cities, in particular, Astana and Almaty”, Kazakh Minister of Agriculture Akhylbek Kurishbayev has said today at the special session in Almaty.
“The Kazakh President in his Address to the Nation outlined three large-scale tasks of the agro-industrial complex development. These tasks formed the basis for the Program of the Agro-Industrial Complex Development for 2010-2014 worked out by the Agriculture Ministry. The innovative approach to its development is, firstly, an emphasis on production of goods on demand of both the domestic and foreign markets, secondly, maximum use of support measures for stimulation of introduction of advanced technologies in the production. Thirdly, it is development of master-plans on eight most perspective dimensions of the development of the agro-industrial complex aimed at specification of implemented measures”, the Minister said.
According to A.Kurishbayev, unlike the earlier adopted programs this document precisely defines final production indicators in dynamics for every district, rural area and enterprise.
