Agricultural Subsidies: Round Table with all important stakeholders and international experts’ participation took place on 9th December 2021.

On 09.12.2021, the project German-Kazkah Agricultural Political Dialogue (APD), implemented by AFC, held a Round Table on the topic of Agricultural Subsidies with about 40 participants from state institutions, the private sector and science from Kazakhstan and Germany. Yerbol Yessenyev, Atameken’s Director of the Agribusiness Department, moderated the event which was held in a hyprid format.

As short-term expert for the APD project, Professor Martin Petrick from the University of Gießen presented a scientific analysis of Kazakhstan’s agricultural subsidy system in the light of Russian and Ukrainian experience. It showed that Kazakhstan’s agricultural output growth exceeds that of peers such as Russia and Ukraine. Mr. Petrick emphasized the importance to scrutinize the implementation as well as the administration especially of credit subsidies.

Dauren Oshakbayev from the Center of Applied Research (Talap) reported about the principles of subsidy evaluation and Alexander Barnewitz presented the results of a survey which APD conducted together with ATAMEKEN among farmers with regard to their engagement in subsidies.
