NUR-SULTAN, June 7. /TASS/. Kazakhstan is planning to deliberately extend its quotas on wheat and flour exports until September 1, the country’s Agriculture Minister Yerbol Karashukeyev told reporters on Tuesday.
"The current quotas in place until June 15 will be extended. <…> We are currently considering the issue, and the quotas are highly likely to be extended until September 1," the minister said.
Earlier, Karashukeyev said he didn’t expect bread prices to rise in the republic amid the global wheat price increase. Kazakhstan currently allows local grain traders to export up to 1 mln metric tons of wheat and 300,000 metric tons of wheat flour from the country.
