Kazakhstan may build grain terminals in Afghanistan

19.12.2017

The deputy chairman of the lower chamber of Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Vladimir Bozhko, suggested to build Kazakh grain terminals and elevators in Afghanistan. In his opinion, this will help selling Kazakh wheat in this country in a profitable and timely manner. This year Kazakhstan has faced a problem of rolling stock shortage. About 3.5 thousand of rail cars cannot return back from abroad for a month, reports UkrAgroConsult.

For a variety of reasons, Kazakh farmers cannot sell their crop. One of the main reasons is the lack of grain hoppers. The problem also lies in the absence of necessary infrastructure for rapid products unloading. Kazakhstan had to attract more than 2 thousand of grain hoppers from other countries to cover the transport deficit.
