The Kazakh Ministry of Agriculture and the Dutch company VISCON signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to implement a project for the construction of an automated centre for producing planting material (free from viruses) using artificial intelligence (AI).

This project aims to improve the sustainability, quality, and yield of crops. AI technologies and in vitro cultivation methods will be utilized within the project, which is planned to be implemented from 2024 to 2026 with an annual production capacity of 12 mn seedlings.

The ministry also signed a document with Royal GD to enhance the veterinary system in Kazakhstan. The project involves modernizing Kazakhstan’s veterinary system to ensure the quality control of livestock products according to international standards and create conditions for the export of domestic products to Western markets.

Dutch companies also plan to invest $16.2 mn in healthcare and environmental projects in the Kyzylorda Region.

According to Deputy Akim (Mayor) of the Kyzylorda Region Ardak Zebeshev, the project in the healthcare system aims to reduce service costs and provide services for patients with new technologies. The telemedicine project will consist of using an application from Dutch partners, which should lead to an improvement in the well-being of the population.

The application will be used to conduct online consultations and coordinate medical teams, which will reduce the number of visits and improve the accessibility of medical care.

In the second project, 80,000 hectares of saxauls are to be planted close to the Aral Sea, with 10,000 hectares to be planted in the first phase.
