On January 17th, a delegation from Kazakhstan led by Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Abulkhair Tamabek visited the assembly site of the company, Eavision Robotic Technologies in the city of Suzhou in China’s Jiangsu Province. The company specializes in the production of unmanned aerial vehicles for monitoring and protection from pests, plant diseases and weeds, using artificial intelligence technology. During the meeting with Xinyu Wang, General Director of Eavision Robotic Technologies, the delegation discussed a project for localizing the production of agricultural drones in Kazakhstan. Emphasizing the uniqueness of such a project, the Ministry of Agriculture stated that there are no such similar production facilities in Russia or any other Central Asian countries.

As a result of the negotiations, a Memorandum of Technical Cooperation was signed for the manufacture of agricultural drones in Kazakhstan. The two sides agreed to develop a roadmap for the implementation of the project, and determine the location of production facilities in Kazakhstan and potential sales markets, including in neighboring countries.
