Almaty, Kazakhstan

Welcome Letters 2021

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

On behalf of the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus in the Republic of Kazakhstan and on my own behalf I welcome the organizers, participants and guests of the exhibitions.

The passing of the Corona crisis phase and the gradual lifting of restrictions in most countries gives us the opportunity to return to live communication, which, as has been noted more than once, has an advantage over events held in an online format.

A wide range of participants' offers from raw materials to production is another peculiarity of the exhibition. The proposed integrated approach has been enthusiastically embraced by all parties.

The Republic of Belarus ensuring its food security, taking the way of sustainable competitive development of high-tech agro-industrial complex and having high enough potential for further dynamic development offers the participants and guests of the exhibition to get acquainted with the latest products in this field at the National exposition of the Republic of Belarus.

In the course of the large-scale congress event - "Belarus - Kazakhstan" Agrarian Forum, it is expected that the representatives of line ministries and departments, heads of enterprises, experts and specialists represent their speeches to make a practical "road map" for the development of agricultural trade between the two countries, the development of cooperation, building logistics chains and practical working schemes.

We will be glad to see guests and participants at the Belarusian stands, and invite you to get acquainted with Belarusian products and take an active part in the Agrarian Forum.

I am convinced that the event will allow the participants and guests to successfully achieve their goals, to strengthen professional
 and partnership relations and to make another step to ensure food security of the state.

Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary

Envoy of the Republic of Belarus

in the Republic Kazakhstan

Dear ladies and gentlemen!

On behalf of the Almaty city akimat, I am happy to welcome and congratulate the organizers, guests and exhibitors on the long-awaited opening of the Food Events Week in the southern capital!

The food industry has been and remains a socially important industry for Kazakhstan. Its enterprises are responsible for processing of agricultural products, food production and food adequacy, regardless of existing quarantine measures. The food industry affects the standard of living of the country's population, which is why the authorities and the antimonopoly service annually stimulate food producers and control the prices of essential goods.

Despite the negative trends caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Almaty managed to finish the past year of 2020 with growth in almost all indicators of socio-economic development, and the food industry was no exception. In the new realities, the issue of food safety, the issue of increasing exports of domestic products, and attracting foreign investment are of particular importance. The need for effective communication and cooperation between all participants in the food chain - the government, manufacturers, industry associations and consumers – to further the effective development of the industry and discuss the most pressing issues is becoming increasingly apparent.

Holding exhibitions of international level in Almaty will allow a large number of professionals to get acquainted with new trends in the industry by demonstrating the latest achievements in food production, packaging and storage.

We wish all the participants and guests of the exhibition successful implementation of their plans, fruitful work and a pleasant stay in our city!

of the Almaty city Entrepreneurship

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

On behalf of the Trade Representation of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Kazakhstan, I am happy to welcome the participants, guests and organizers of the 23rd Central Asian International Exhibition FoodExpo Qazaqstan 2021.

The Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan are strategic partners and long-standing reliable friends. Together we solve problems not only through Russian-Kazakh cooperation, but also within the EAEU. Providing the population of our countries with quality food, support and development of food, processing and agricultural industries is our constant priority.

The Russian Federation is a permanent participant of FoodExpo Qazaqstan. This year visitors will be able to see the potential of such regions as the Altai Krai, Krasnoyarsk, Astrakhan, Voronezh, Kaliningrad, Kirov and Omsk regions, Kabardino-Balkaria, the Republic of Bashkortostan and Khakassia, Udmurt Republic, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District, the Jewish Autonomous Region, a total of 13 regions of Russia, as well as 75 Russian companies.

Such increased interest in participation in this industry event is not accidental, since the Kazakh market is a priority market for sales of Russian producers, our products are loved by the people of Kazakhstan and are widely represented in stores of the country, which is reflected in the stable growth of trade turnover.

In the first half of 2021, foreign trade turnover between Russia and Kazakhstan increased by 31% to 11.74 billion US dollars. Russian exports increased by 26.9%, amounting to 8.3 billion US dollars.  Imports of products from Kazakhstan showed a significant increase of 42.1% and reached 3.5 billion US dollars. In the total volume of trade, food products account for more than 1.4 billion US USA or 12%.

I am convinced that the upcoming exhibition and events within the business program will further increase the volume of mutual supplies, enable us to conclude mutually beneficial contracts, and ultimately provide Russians and Kazakhstanis with high-quality and healthy products.

I sincerely wish all participants and guests of the exhibition successful meetings, exciting communication and effective work!

The agricultural sector is one of the key and promising sectors for Kazakhstan's economy, on which the country's food security depends directly.  Today, the government is taking a number of measures to develop and strengthen the agro-industrial complex of Kazakhstan.

Dear ladies and gentlemen!

On behalf of the Kazakh Academy of Nutrition, I am pleased to welcome all guests and participants to FoodExpo Qazakqhstan 2021, as well as participants in the Professional Tasting Contest – “Best product of FoodExpo Qazakqhstan 2021”!

The annual increase in the number of producers of food and beverages at the site is surprising in its diversity. It is encouraging to note that the exhibitors at the exhibition show a high degree of responsibility to our consumers, presenting at the site not only beautifully presented products, but also those produced in accordance with modern requirements of quality and safety.

Thanks to events such as FoodExpo Qazakqhstan, Kazakhstan's market is enriched not only with new products, but also with a variety of quality products with concern for the health of the population.

Over 23 years of the Professional Tasting Contest, which has been successfully held as part of the exhibition and is already an integral part of the FoodExpo Qazakqhstan 2021 global project, we have also seen an increase in the number of participants and the number of products submitted to the contest. It is good to note that the geography of the contest products is also expanding.

I am sure that this year, manufacturers from Kazakhstan and near and far abroad countries will present only the best food and beverages, which will be appreciated by the professional community of Kazakhstan.

I sincerely wish all exhibitors and contestants to achieve their goals, implement their plans, and be competitive and in demand on the Kazakhstan market and beyond.

Sincerely,

Chairman of tasting board
