Kazakhstan. Hemp to be grown for paper production



Kazakhstan is a small central Asian and former soviet state which lacks its own paper industry.  Paper import costs are high and local politicians have agreed a new way to produce their own paper by growing Hemp.  The Chu Valley region (140,000 hectares) has been identified as ideal for crop growing, and has previously been a favoured fertile valley for illicit cannabis growing.  Hemp harvests are expected to produce around 4 times the amount of paper that a conventional tree harvest would yield.  And the Hemp can also be used for a range of other products including bio-fuels, textiles, fabrics and pharmaceuticals.  The re-introduction of Hemp as a farmed crop coincides with a greater relaxation of cannabis rules around the world.
