Experts about ЕХРО 2017
EXPO 2017 in Astana gave the opportunity to see scientists’ most advanced developments in green technologies. In addition to the outstanding content, Kazakh authorities demonstrated high organizational capabilities. After the completion of EXPO 2017, foreign diplomats, state and public figures continue to express their admiration for the event. The Deputy State Secretary of the Latvian Ministry of Transport Uldis Reimanis visited Kazakhstan at the closing ceremony of the exhibition. According to Uldis Reimanis, the large-scale exposition gives the colossal opportunity for residents of other countries to get acquainted with history and culture of Kazakhs.
ULDIS REIMANIS, DEPUTY STATE SECRETARY, LATVIAN MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT:
- I think that approximately 4 million people who visited the expo from 176 different countries and about 4000 volunteers who helped to do this learned about the whole world. I think that those who haven’t been to other countries yet got the opportunity to visit several places in the world at the same time. They came and showed not only what they can, but also they told about themselves. I’m grateful to the organizers for appreciating Latvia’s participation. Latvia was granted the third place in innovation and design projects. During the entire exhibition, I visited the expo site for three times. I think that Kazakhstan was presented at the highest level.
Representatives of the UK pavilion highlight that the expo was the highest level event and undoubted success.
SARA EVERETT, DEPUTY COMMISSIONER OF UK PAVILION AT EXPO 2017:
- We’ve just returned to London after over three months in Astana at the expo. It was a wonderful experience. The expo site itself was very magnificent, a great architectural creation. We had a really wonderful space for the UK pavilion and we were absolutely delighted that we won the silver award over half a million visitors.
