Export quota

The Kazakh agriculture minister introduced on 2 April 2020 export quotas concerning wheat and meslin, until 1 September 2020.

Vendors applying for export quotas need to sell a set amount of reserves at the internal market at a fixed price in order to qualify for an export quota. The website of the agriculture ministry stated the traders were obliged to sell 30% of their exported volumes on the internal market. 

The announced measures have been taken to ensure a stable supply of foods and products under the state of emergency announced as a result of COVID-19 and enter into force on 2 April 2020. 

On 26 May 2020, the minister signed an early termination of the wheat quota, starting 1 June 2020.
