Kazakhstan Suspended Meat Exports to China
Meat exports from Kazakhstan to China were temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. Thus, plans of Kazakh entrepreneurs on the export increase have been disrupted.
However, China is one of the main markets of Kazakh farmers. Meat producers exported over 4,000 tons of beef to China last year. In total, the Kazakh producers of meat and meat products set a record in 2019 reaching the total export share of 63,000 tons. This year the producers planned to increase this figure by a quarter.
