According to him, if the borders are closed again due to an external factor, food reserves will be delivered to free markets by the decision of the Government.
«After announcement of the pandemic and closure of borders, including with Kazakhstan, the State Material Reserves Fund has processed wheat making 11,828 tons of first grade flour of it. In February, there was a great demand for first grade flour that is why the prices for this product have unreasonably increased.
