Zhezkazgan copper-smelting plant of Kazakhmys Smelting LLP has resumed work at full capacity: the second ore smelting furnace was launched, Trend reports citing the Kazakh media.


Since 2009, the enterprise operated only one furnace due to the lack of raw materials for full load. Now, after a long break, the plant has returned to full operation.


"If for almost ten years the plant, working at half of its capacity, produced 100,000 tons of copper, thanks to the second furnace we will receive 200,000 tons," said the governor of the Karaganda region Yerlan Koshanov.




Also, the enterprise succeeded in expanding its raw material base. This was made possible thanks to the commissioning of new mining and processing facilities of KAZ Minerals LLP.


Today the design capacity of the plant is 220,000 tons of copper cathode per year. The launch of the second furnace at the plant allowed the creation of about 600 new jobs. The total number of personnel will be more than 2,000 people.

It is planned to build a plant for the production of fuel oil based on plastic and polyethylene in the city of Ridder, East Kazakhstan region, Trend reports citing Kazinform.


Etalon LLP, a company which provides services for garbage collection and disposal and road repair, intends to recycle waste. Governor of East Kazakhstan region Danial Akhmetov expressed support for the new project during his working visit to Ridder.




"We raised the question to close the existing solid waste landfill. We intend to perform treatment of the material accumulated and produce fuel oil from it. We will use it as a raw material in summer and generate diesel from the residues in winter. We will take garbage sorting equipment from Russia and recycling equipment from Iran or China," said Viktor Strebkov, Director of Etalon LLP.


The entrepreneur intends to implement the project of environmentally vital importance at his own expense. "In addition, we will repair the roads. The money received from this will be invested in the successful project," says the businessman. "The project is promising. It all depends on how you run it. On the part of the government, we can allocate a 7 percent interest rate loan within a program of DAMU [Entrepreneurship Development Fund]," said Danial Akhmetov.

The Ministry of Defense and Aerospace Industry of Kazakhstan talked about its activity plans for the future. Among them is creation of a satellite together with Uzbekistan, Podrobno.uz reported referring to the Kazakh media.


Director of the Department of International Military and Technical Cooperation Aslanbek Syrlanov said there are specific proposals on creation of joint Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan satellite. This device will be able to provide services not only to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, but also to other countries in the region.


"Currently, our Uzbek colleagues use foreign satellites. Therefore, it was proposed to jointly build one satellite," said Syrlanov at a press conference dedicated to the Kazakh-Uzbek cooperation.


In addition, within the framework of cooperation of Central Asian countries, it is proposed to build five satellites for remote sensing of the earth. Those devices will be able to photograph objects up to five meters in size.

"In such case each Central Asian state will operate one satellite. But, at the same time, it will be possible to use data from all five devices. Thus, it will be possible to receive new pictures every day. All these proposals are put forward by Kazakhstan", Syrlanov said.


Today, an international conference on development of cooperation between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in the new geopolitical conditions has been started in Astana. The conference is organized by the Kazakhstan Institute of Strategic Research under the president of Kazakhstan. The event is attended by the leadership of the Institute of Strategic and Regional Studies under the president of Uzbekistan. In addition, the conference is attended by leading experts of the two countries. Within the framework of the event, a Memorandum of cooperation between the two institutes was signed.

Baikonur was the launch site for the Soyuz 2-1A which was equipped with Kanopus-V remote sensing satellites. and potentially next year, Baikonur will be the site again which will deliver 2 Emirati Astronauts to space using a Soyuz 2

Agricultural industry is one of the drivers of the economic growth in Kazakhstan. The Government is set to strengthen agricultural development by introducing modern technologies and providing support to farmers. As part of the Kazakh Agriculture Ministry’s development program, the milk and poultry production in Kazakhstan will be tripled in the next 10 years. A meat processing complex and 16 dairy farms will also be built in Akmola and Karagandy regions by 2021. All these measures are aimed at eliminating import of dairy products and chicken meat.
Digital transformation is also yielding positive results in agricultural sector. New technologies allow farmers to efficiently keep records. A mobile application developed in one of the farms in West Kazakhstan region sparked interest among owners of neighboring livestock enterprises. It is a tracking system which requires a cell phone with a GPS beacon. Farmers put mobile phone around one of the animal’s necks to search for the lost herd.
The same mobile application allows farmers to keep track of their livestock. Animals on the farm are provided with radio frequency tags. The farmers attached the tags on the cattle for electronic identification. All data is stored in the Agriculture Ministry’s database. Through the application, farmers can access this database and make changes in the animal’s passport. The farmer’s idea was supported by the Ministry of Agriculture.

Kazakhstan is ready to cooperate with Zimbabwe in the mining industry and in the supply of agricultural products, Trend reports referring to the Kazakh media.

The remarks were made by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev at a briefing on the results of the official visit of the Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa to Kazakhstan.

"We have met at the level of heads of state for the first time since 1992, when we established diplomatic relations. This meeting is of particular historical importance for the development of relations between Kazakhstan and Zimbabwe and for strengthening cooperation between the regions of Central Asia and South Africa," Nazarbayev said.

He noted that the parties discussed the prospects of bilateral cooperation between the two countries and exchanged views. The president noted that trade cooperation between the countries is at a low level.



"There is an opportunity to establish cooperation in certain areas. Our countries are similar. Zimbabwe is very rich in its subsoil and various minerals. Our countries are also similar in agriculture. Therefore, Kazakhstan is ready to consider cooperation in the mining industry and supply of food, wheat, meat and other agricultural products," said Nazarbayev.

It should be noted that presently Kazakhstan imports only tobacco from Zimbabwe. Kazakh enterprises are involved in joint mining projects in Zimbabwe.

Diplomatic relations between Kazakhstan and Zimbabwe were established in 1992. The trade turnover between the two countries in January-October 2018 amounted to $637,000, which is 24.7 percent higher than in the same period of 2017.
