He reminded that this year Kazakhstan government had made a decision to introduce ban on export of grain, which was lifted on September 1. "I consider that this was an emergency and not a popular measure, but it was necessary at that moment," K. Masimov emphasized. "During moratorium we accepted a number of decisions, a number of system measures, which will allow us not to resort to this measure in the future ... They consist in the fact that we are a country producing grain and we should guarantee our population that we will have grain as much as we need for domestic consumption and at such a price that people can afford to pay," he specified. "We have made such decision and we have created stabilization funds of grain in each oblast. This year has demonstrated us how much grain we need. Since this year harvest we will be buying grain through the state food corporation to provide all oblasts with grain," the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan explained.
