WHY SHOULD WE VISIT PAVILIONS OF MONACO AND FINLAND?
The entire world is waiting for Expo 2017 in Astana. Monaco is also preparing for the international exhibition. The Prince Albert II has personally designed the pavilion, which will be presented in Astana. This was reported by the Ambassador of Monaco to the UK and concurrently to Kazakhstan Evelyne Genta. According to her, Kazakh government attaches great importance to environmental issues and green energy. Monaco has already found a solution of air pollution. Therefore, they have something to demonstrate at the specialized exhibition.
