For the first ten days of February, the railway loading of grain in comparison with the same period of the last year within the republic and for export increased by 11%. In the intra-republican transportation service 50.5 thousand tons were sent, for export – 139.7 thousand tons. However, the loading of flour decreased, which is due to a decrease in prices for this product of the main importers. The amount of flour shipped is 97% compared to the last year’s rate, the IA “Kazakh-Zerno” reported.

About 8.3 million tons were shipped for export. There is an increase in traffic at border crossings with China - by 26 percent, Uzbekistan - by 58 percent, through the port of Aktau - by 27 percent.
