«Identification of cattle in Kyrgyzstan is almost completed,» Nurbek Murashev, the Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, said today at a meeting of the Parliament.
Under an agreement with Russia, Crocus company had to deliver 2 million tags for $ 1.4 million. At least 1.6 million tags have been used.
However, Aaly Karashev, a deputy, believes that it was possible to build a plant to produce tags in Kyrgyzstan.
«We are spending budget funds, buying tags outside the country. Production of tags should pay for itself. Otherwise, we will not be able to develop further,» the deputy said.
