500-hectare greenhouse mega-complex is to be built in Kazakhstan

During his working trip to Kazakhstan on June 5-6, the President of the APH ECO-Culture Alexander Rudakov met with representatives of Turkestan Region government and discussed the current issues related to the construction of the Eurasia greenhouse complex. The project will be unique because of its scope. It’s going to be located in the south of Kazakhstan on the territory of 500 hectares. The total volume of investments in greenhouse facilities will amount to 1.1 billion rubles.

The agreement on the construction was signed on May 17, 2019, in Nur-Sultan, the capital of Kazakhstan during KGIR-2019. This annual event is a round table on global investment projects. The Kazakh side was represented by Green Land Alatau company.

During the visit, the President of ECO-Culture had meetings with the Deputy Akim of Turkestan Region Mierzhan Myrzaliyev and the Akim of the Region (the Head of Government) Umirzak Shukeyev. The parties discussed the financial model of the project, the procedure of allocating the land for construction, as well as technical aspects of the soon-to-be largest greenhouse facility in Kazakhstan. A small trip was also made to the Kelessky district of the region to examine the landscape conditions and features of the site earmarked for construction.

The project is scheduled to be implemented stage by stage in 5 years, and each phase facility will be put into operation immediately after the completion. The total number of new jobs to be created during construction is 10,000.

As Alexander Rudakov pointed out, such projects as Eurasia, implemented in cooperation between Russia and Kazakhstan, open up new prospects for a mutually beneficial partnership of the two countries in terms of both import substitution and food security. This also allows for increasing the export potential for the entire region.

He also underlined that the implementation of such a large project in Kazakhstan is a nothing else but a logical continuation of the “ECO-Culture” general development strategy. Right now, the company is planning further agricultural expansion to the CIS countries.
