Based on QazTrade, an information and analytical portal is being created to provide a wide range of services for both prospective and active exporters. Deputy Chair of QazTrade Center for Trade Policy Development Assel Egemberdiyeva said this in an exclusive interview to PrimeMinister.kz.
Recall that in September 2019, a single window for exporters, QazTrade, was created in Kazakhstan, which provides all support measures for exporters.
Assel Egemberdiyeva said that in December 2019, within the framework of QazTrade, it is planned to launch a single portal export.gov.kz.
The following support will be provided to enterprises through the portal:
- Independent assessment of the export potential of the enterprise and its products;
- Market analysis of a potential importer and a marketing campaign to promote the product;
- Formation of a package of necessary documents for the export of goods and services;
- In-depth and comprehensive analysis of foreign industry and country markets;
- The study of trade barriers to entering foreign markets and the development of proposals for their elimination.
The portal will include all the necessary information for exporters, including information materials on goods of export interest of Kazakhstan, the most attractive sales markets, statistics, advertising and other information regarding export activities. At the same time, a register of Kazakhstani exporters-suppliers and their products will be posted on the portal. This will allow foreign customers to find Kazakhstani counterparties on the portal.
“This will be a resource for feedback from exporters. They may apply for support measures. The portal will be interesting for importers of Kazakhstani products, who can find potential exporters, suppliers of Kazakhstani products on this portal,” said Egemberdiyeva.
