Wheat is an important food product and a strategically important agricultural crop. In Central Asian economies, it occupies the leading place in cultivation and is the largest contributor to calories and nutrients in daily diet.
Due to their climatic and territorial features, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan are not able to supply enough wheat for their domestic market and are dependent on wheat imports, especially from Kazakhstan.
In the flour sector, the diversification of external purchases by importers and the development of their own grain processing play a significant role.
