The issues of food provision for the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 were discussed in the East Kazakhstan region,. All regions of the region agreed to participate in food fairs except the city of Ridder, KazTAG reports.
Ridder administration applied to the regional akimat with the request to exclude the city from the list of participants of food fairs.
"Today, all regions of the Eastern Kazakhstan have approved their participation in the exhibition except the city of Ridder. They asked to exclude them from participating in the fairs since they are not able to provide the requested 1.5 tons of dairy products, 3 tons of honey and 8 tons of potatoes and vegetables. This issue is being resolved at the level of the regional akimat", - the source said.
According to previously approved agreements, East Kazakhstan region should provide 6.4 thousand tons of food products for the time of the exhibition.
