Chairman of the national company ‘Astana Expo 2017’ Akhmetzhan Yessimov and the SCO Secretary General agreed on the upcoming meeting. Rashid Alimov noted that it would be particularly important for the organization to participate in the international exhibition in order to demonstrate its contribution to environmental protection and promotion of environmental programs. The SCO will make a presentation of its pavilion in China ahead of Expo.
RASHID ALIMOV, SCO SECRETARY GENERAL:
- The Expo 2017 will not only demonstrate the latest scientific and technological developments. It will also tell about what sort of environment a human being will live in in the future. Would it be smog and extremely polluted environment causing cancer and other diseases or good conditions compatible with the laws of nature? I think that Astana Expo 2017 is significant for people.
