The current 2016/17 season continues witnessing record shipments of the Kazakh product abroad, reports UkrAgroConsult. So, exports exceeded 30 KMT in the nine months of MY 2016/17 that is up 66% year-on-year (18.3 KMT).

3.1 KMT of sunoil was supplied to foreign markets from Kazakhstan in May 2017, or 9.5% less than in the previous month. This amount was almost 2.5 times higher than in May 2016 (1.3 KMT).
