This was stated by Artak Kamalyan, Member of the Board Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture of the Eurasian Economic Commission, during a visit to Rostselmash, the largest manufacturer of combine harvesters in the Eurasian Economic Union.


Issues of ensuring equal access of national agricultural machinery manufacturers to the EAEU market were discussed during the working consultation at the plant.


The Minister has informed the meeting attendees about the systematic work to remove restrictions associated with the provision of subsidies as well as complete resolution of the issue of charging a utilization fee for agricultural machinery to be supplied to Kazakhstan’s market. He has thanked the enterprise's management for their experts' active position in removing potential industry-related obstacles in the Union's market.

“A relevant decision regarding utilization fees for agricultural machinery to be collected in the Republic of Kazakhstan was adopted in June this year. The issue of providing subsidies for foreign agricultural machinery is being strongly addressed, and there are prerequisites for this situation to be resolved in the near future," Artak Kamalyan stressed.

During his visit, the Minister examined the company's manufacturing sites – a flexible technology complex, central logistics complex and expo complex, noting the high level of production processes at the plant.
