September 21, Fineko/abc.az. The Government of Kazakhstan has lifted restrictions on the export of wheat and flour from the country.

ABC.AZ reports that the new rules came into force 10 days ago.

The restrictions on the export of wheat and flour from Kazakhstan were introduced this April.

As a result of Russia's attack on Ukraine, there was a threat of shortage in the world grain market, and all countries imposed export restrictions to avoid this risk.

In June, the ban was extended until 30 September.

Now, the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan has announced that this year the country has high grain yield, about 13 million tons will be harvested (12% more versus last year's volume). And domestic demand requires only 6.5 million tons of grain.
