Guides in the pavilion of Finland at EXPO-2017 will be Kazakhstani students
Kazakh students studying in Finland will become the guides of the Finnish national pavilion at Astana EXPO 2017. They will tell their compatriots about the peculiarities of living in Finland. Such approach will allow the expo visitors to better understand the culture of the Nordic country. The Finnish expo team is preparing to surprise the guests of the world’s fair this summer. Unique design of the Finnish pavilion will consist of four separate sections dedicated to "Clean Energy", "Smart City", "Clean Water" and "Excellent Education". Each of these sections will present a separate topic in the overall concept. For example, in the "Excellent education" section the visitors will be able to get acquainted with the education system in Finland, and about innovations in this area.
SEVERI KEINALA, FINNISH EXPO COMMISSIONER:
- In our pavilion, we are presenting the whole scale of education from primary education to basic education to continuous education in universities and colleges. But here we are mainly concentrating on after-the-basic education elements.
In the meantime, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia intend to jointly develop renewable energy and petrochemical industries. Saudi Arabian delegation led by the Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, Khalid Al-Faleh, has arrived in Astana. At the meeting with his Kazakh counterpart, Kanat Bozumbaev, the parties discussed the ways of introducing technologies and know-how in the energy sector. Khalid Al-Faleh on behalf of King Salman thanked the President of Kazakhstan for the invitation to participate in the expo, where projects in the field of energy conservation will be presented.
KHALID AL-FALEH, SAUDI ARABIAN MINISTER OF ENERGY AND INDUSTRY:
