Umirzak Shukeyev briefed the President on the results of the visit of the governmental delegation to the USA where negotiations on Kazakhstan’s accession to the WTO were held.
"The negotiations were being held on three directions: commodity group, trade in services and on systemic issues. The trades in goods talks are close to completion. The technical part is the only work left. We identified the ways of solution of some pressing issues on trade in services. Presently, these issues have already been posed. As for systemic issues, the Kazakh content issue, being the most important for us, was passed beyond the bilateral format and brought to the multilateral one. It is a great achievement for us,” U.Shukeyev stressed at a press briefing.
The measures on ensuring stability at the domestic food market were also discussed at the meeting.
"We elaborated a number of additional measures to ensure price stability for basic food products. The head of state approved these measures,” the First Deputy Prime Minister added.
