Kyrgyzstan: new technologies in agro-industrial complex
The Kyrgyz government is planning to increase the volumes of meat export to the markets of the Eurasian Economic Union. A new electronic identification system will serve to facilitate exporting products from Kyrgyzstan. The electronic data collection, aimed at tracking animals is part of the global information system. It is divided into several steps. The initial data about the animals’ birth related information is registered in the database on the regional level. This information is further collected in the republican databank and will follow animals and later their meat up to the consumers.
KUBATBEK BORONOV, FIRST DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER OF KYRGYZSTAN:
- A labeling specialist will write and fill the transportation documents. The recipients will see the document online. They will also see the date when the product was loaded together with characteristics, location and what borders did they cross. The customers will see the data on the delivery of the products as well.
It will be easy to gain access to the animal tracking system. Knowing the special identification number will be enough. After entering the data, the customer requesting the information, will get all data about the animals, including the vaccination history. The same applies to the meat. As soon as the information about the meat goes into the databank, it becomes available on the territory of any EAEU country, where the meat product is exported. Currently, the system contains data about more than 1.5 million livestock. According to specialists, the system will be further filled with data about other animals as well.
KALYSBEK ZHUMAKANOV, DIRECTOR, KYRGYZ STATE VETERINARY SECURITY INSPECTION:
- We have completed our work with the cattle, and now we are going to add pigs and horses. We are currently chipping horses that will be followed by the sheep. It is very good software that will be soon integrated with the software of the EAEU member countries.
