Today the Kazakh delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Agriculture Askar Myrzakhmetov, on the first day of a working trip to China, met with Zhi Shuping, Chairman of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China.

The parties discussed a number of important matters regarding lifting restrictions and gaining access of Kazakh agricultural products to the Chinese market. In particular, the Chinese side confirmed holding inspections in April this year of the meat-lamb production system and meat processing enterprises for inclusion in the Register of Supplier Companies in China. Both sides will accelerate procedures for coordinating draft Protocols of veterinary and phytosanitary requirements for export from Kazakhstan to the PRC for 34 types of products. The Kazakh side initiated the discussion of creating joint laboratories for quality and safety control on the territory of Kazakhstan, and their accreditation.

Following the meeting, a Protocol was signed between the two countries on the requirements of inspection, quarantine and sanitary requirements for export batches of wheat bran.

Thanks to this agreement, Kazakh businessmen for the first time have the opportunity to export wheat bran to the Chinese market and the first to use this unique chance was the joint Kazakh-Chinese processing company “«Huoerguosi Irbis International Trading Co LTD»”.

In turn, the General Director of the company Marat Dauletkaliyev on behalf of entrepreneurs expressed gratitude to the Government of Kazakhstan for the achieved constructive agreements. He is confident that this will give a new impetus to developing export potential of the grain processing industry.
