Kazakhstan grain exports seen at 7.5mt

Kazakhstan's agriculture ministry projects the nation's grain export potential at up to 7.5 million tonnes, including leftover grain stocks from the previous harvest.

"Exports were 4.4 million tonnes as of November 20. We forecast to export another 1.1 million tonnes before the end of the year," said to Anna Buts, a senior ministry official to press agency Agra Europe. "The current balance of grain allows us to fulfil domestic demand and export 7-7.5 million tonnes including leftover grain," she said.

Export countries
Most Kazakh grain exports are delivered to other ex-Soviet states in the CIS bloc. So far this year, exports went to 28 countries, with 73% shipped to the CIS, 10% to the European Union and 8% to the Middle East, Buts said.
