Welcome Letters 2012

Dear Exhibitors, Guests and Organisers,

On behalf of KAZNEX INVEST National Export and Investment Agency under the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of Kazakhstan, I would like to extend my congratulations to all exhibitors, guests and organisers on the opening of the WorldFood Kazakhstan and AgroWorldKazakhstan International Forums and the AGRICA Agricultural Conference, which Almaty traditionally hosts in autumn.

Kazakhstan is very well prepared to compete in the global market with such goods as flour, macaroni products, fruit and vegetables, fish, dairy products, and confectionery. Such confidence is supported by the stable development of the agricultural industry – it meets the domestic needs and boasts strong capabilities for growth.

Specifically, the amount of local macaroni products exported to 16 countries worldwide ramps up annually. The exports of finished flour and milk products and baked goods have grown by almost 30 percent over the previous year. The exports of oil seeds, fruits and wool have demonstrated the same growth level.

I would like to note that KAZNEX INVEST provides comprehensive support to local food manufacturers in their efforts to enter foreign markets. We assist them in determining sales markets and finding end buyers, and we also compensate the costs incurred by exporters. With our direct support, local food products are exported on a regular basis to Russia, China, Central Asia, Caucasian region, and South East Asia.

I am hopeful that such exhibitions and conferences will serve as an efficient ground to share best practices of international and local manufacturers and as such will enhance recognisability of Kazakhstan products.

I wish success and prosperity to all exhibitors and guests!

Meirzhan Maikenov
Vice Chairman of the Board

Dear Exhibitors, Guests and Organisers,

On behalf of KazAgro National Managing Holding JSC, let me congratulate you on the opening of WorldFood Kazakhstan and AgroWorld Kazakhstan, two International Exhibitions traditionally run in Almaty in autumn.

The priorities of the KazAgro Holding’s investment policy include participation in the assurance of food security and development of the export potential of the country’s agricultural sector. These critical areas present common tasks both for the Holding and the Exhibitions.

The WorldFood Kazakhstan and AgroWorld Kazakhstan 2012 Exhibitions are the largest projects in Central Asia for food industry and agriculture, encompassing more than 350 companies of 35 countries all over the world. This year, the exhibitions would display a record number of national groups. The attractiveness of the local market and the exhibitions for foreign companies bears the evidence of the dynamic development of Kazakhstan’s economy generally, which is a pleasure to note.

By participating in the exhibition events, many of our partners will gain additional opportunities to meet potential customers, make transactions and strengthen their market power.

I congratulate the event organisers and exhibitors on the jubilee of the exhibitions and wish all of you a successful and effective dialogue, success to your business and creative work, and all the best!
