According to the Minister of Investments and Development of Kazakhstan Zhenis Kassymbek, Kazakhstan will resume grain supplies to Norway.
Speaking at the plenary session of Mazhilis, Kassymbek noted that even though the trade turnover between the two countries was low right now, there was a 53% increase in automobile transportation and the ministry saw prospects for further growth.
According to him, Kazakh grain exports to Norway declined last year and today the MID is working on returning to those volumes. He added that the ministry hoped the trade balance would recover by the end of 2017.
In the first six months of 2017, trade turnover between Kazakhstan and Norway amounted to $17.4 million, including $13.6 million in imports and $3.7 million in exports. (Kazinform/Business World Magazine)
