Prospect of starting production in Kazakhstan in view of difference between the global demand and supply of nitrogen fertilizers reduction

The main markets for fertilizer (Russian Federation and China) are located near Republic of Kazakhstan

Remoteness of countries with the greatest increase in production capacity makes the final cost of export from Republic of Kazakhstan more competitive
