Ramezan Bahrami said the newly-signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) pertained to extra-territorial agriculture and aimed at development of agro sector in Kazakhstan’s Kyzylorda Region in partnership with the north Iranian province.

“Kazakhstan hold appropriate capacities for implementation of extra-territorial agriculture activities especially in areas of growing rice, corn and barley,” the official added.

Bahrami further said it had been agreed to hold a follow-up meeting in the Kazakh province in near future with Golestan trade delegation in attendance in order to implement provisions of the MoU.
