Kazakhstan's grain exports oriented toward CIS states - official
TASS, January 20, 2004
Kazakhstan's grain exports are oriented towards CIS countries, first vice-president of the national food company Abai Bisembayev told reporters on Tuesday.
Bisembayev explained it by the fact that grain harvest in Russia and Ukraine was below average annual indicators, whereas Kazakhstan gathered more than 16 million tonnes of which it could export some five million tonnes.


When asked by Itar-Tass why Ukraine refused to purchase Kazakh grain and bought it from the United States instead, Bisembayev answered that grain prices were constantly fluctuating. At present, Kazakhstan's grain is shipped for exports at some 160 dollars per tonne.

The price subsequently increases due to transportation costs, so when delivered to Ukraine, a tonne of grain already costs up to 180 dollars.

Ukraine purchased a batch of grain from the United States last December when it was slightly cheaper than the Kazakh grain.

However, the price of U.S. grain per tonne reaches 200 dollars now, which considerably exceeds Kazakh prices.

Director of the Land Department under the Kazakh Ministry of Agriculture Arman Yevniyev added that Ukraine purchased more than 1.8 million tonnes of Kazakh grain last year.

This covers one third of Ukraine's demand Yevniyev said. At the same time, both Bisembayev and Yevniyev indirectly acknowledged that Kazakhstan was not yet capable of fully meeting grain demand in CIS states.
