“Kazakhstan remains a global player in the flax market - the country's share in world production ranges from 25% in different years, and in world exports - more than 30%. For the past several years, Kazakhstan has been ranked first in the world for flax production, for exports - 2-3rd places, in different years, and at the end of the 2019/20 season, it took first place, ”the expert said.

Also E. Karabanov noted that despite a significant reduction in the current year. sown areas under rapeseed in the Republic of Kazakhstan, oilseed producers will be able to get a good income due to the increased yield compared to last year and the absence of crop pests.

“Kazakhstan is one of the ten world exporters of rapeseed, occupying 6-7th places in different years. In the current season, Kazakhstan's rapeseed export is projected at about 42 thousand tons, which is 40% less than last year. Estimation of refining volumes will depend on the situation in the Chinese market, since over the past two seasons, 95% of rapeseed oil has been shipped to this country. Further export prospects depend on resolving the issue of GMOs, which were found first in Russian oil, and then in Kazakhstani oil, but in any case, the supply of raw materials to China will continue, ”he added.
