Kazakhstan started explanatory work to establish agricultural cooperatives
This measure is carried out in order to fulfill the orders of the Head of State, voiced in the message of “The Third Modernization of Kazakhstan: global competitiveness.”
Head of State set out targets for the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan to involve not less than 500 thousand smallholders into agricultural co-operatives in rural areas.
