There are certain challenges, but there is potential and prospects in it, with even more opportunities than in the oil production. My company Mirak Group has been in agribusiness for almost 40 years, and over the past three years we have tried to launch projects in Kazakhstan. There were many challenges, but now we have a partner and we hope to launch the project soon.
