The event gathered some of the country’s largest agricultural companies, such as Qazaq Aqbas (Kazakh white-headed), Auliekolsky, Angus, Hereford, Kalmyk, among others.
“Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, there is an acute need for innovations, exchange of experience, new partnerships. The opportunity to enter into a direct dialogue with a potential partner is absolutely necessary for all our participants now,” said Sholpan Kozhabayeva, director of the ExpoGroup exhibition company that is in charge of the organization of the exhibition.
The goal is also to showcase achievements in the field of agriculture, link agribusiness representatives with the necessary contacts and business ties for the successful development of the industry, and provide a diversified dialogue platform to discuss problems, seek solutions, conduct business negotiations, as well as promote the brands of participants and their products.
The program of the event is rich with seminars organized on such topics as the import and export of agricultural products, investments in the agro-industrial complex, the availability of agricultural machinery and technologies in production, and problems of crop production development.
The livestock section of the exhibition is devoted to innovations in production, addressing drought regulation and increasing feed production.
The new feature in the exhibition is the focus on science and how it can help farmers address their problems. One of the main goals of the exhibition, according to the organizers, is to support farmers of Kazakhstan in addressing their issues, based on local and international practices.
As part of the exhibition, Rostselmash, Russian leading producer of agricultural equipment, presented some of their products and equipment for the first time, such as smart electronic systems for agriculture, as well as new and already proven models of agricultural machinery: combines, tractors, tillage, sowing equipment.
