The President Nursultan Nazarbayev outlined the key principles of Kazakhstan’s further development in his annual address to the nation. One of the main tasks was the development of electronic commerce. Kazakhstan is undergoing a rapid growth now. Thus, the country established the warehouse receipts system in agricultural commodity sales. The first online trade has already taken place. At present, farmers will only need a computer, the Internet access and an electronic digital signature to sell their crops. In turn, online transactions became possible after the introduction of electronic warehouse receipts system that now will serve nearly 200,000 farms in Kazakhstan.

AUEZKHAN DARINOV, PRESIDENT, KAZAKHSTAN’S FARMERS UNION:

Previously, the crops used to be stored in a grain elevator, and a farmer had to go there every day and check if there are any customers. At present, crops are sold online.

The Head of Kazakhstan’s Farmers’ Union, Auezkahan Darinov believes that the introduction of the electronic warehouse receipts is a considerable advancement. Farmers don’t have to search for customers themselves, everything is simple now - the buyers go online and purchase the grain at an adequate market price.

ZHANASSYL OSPANOV, CHAIRMAN, INFORMATION ACCOUNTING CENTER, KAZAKH FINANCE MINISTRY:

The more sales we have the higher is the liquidity. That is, one can simply hand over an electronic warehouse receipt and get the money.  

Zhanassyl Ospanov, the Head of Information Accounting Center of the Kazakh Finance Ministry, the Operator of electronic warehouse receipts, shows how easy it is to sell the grain. Selling online lets farmers receive more working capital for business development.

ZHANASSYL OSPANOV, CHAIRMAN, INFORMATION ACCOUNTING CENTER, KAZAKH FINANCE MINISTRY:

Our platform has nearly 50,000 registered users, and the vast majority of them are businessmen looking for investment opportunities.

The developers of the electronic warehouse receipts plan to improve the system. In the coming months, they will score grain companies’ rating; one of its main indicators will be the availability of insurance for the grain warehouse receipts.
