Foreign tourists who visited the EXPO in Astana shared their impressions. Abzal Amin, a British businessman, was impressed by the scale of the event, and said that the exhibition shows Kazakhstan’s potential.
ABZAL AMIN, BUSINESSMEN, UK:
- I had a great pleasure of visiting expo in Astana, a great expo, really wonderful location. The most extraordinary thing was a beautiful sphere in the middle of the expo which is Kazakh pavilion itself, very impressive and a great testimony to a great work that is going on in Kazakhstan. I think the involvement of over 100 countries is a great testament to centrality of Kazakhstan as global nation, global player in world affairs.
Chinese businessmen developing green technology projects are taking part in the EXPO 2017. According to the deputy president of the energy company Hy Tianyue, the exhibition will help change the views and attitudes of the people on protection of the environment.
HY TIANYUE, DEPUTY PRESIDENT OF ENERGY COMPANY, CHINA:
- We cannot all simultaneously abandon traditional sources of energy. But we need to develop alternative energy and gradually switch to the renewables. This will let us reduce emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. I expect great impact from the exhibition in Astana. I'm sure that it will help change the people’s worldview.
EXPO 2017 will be interesting for those presenting a variety of experiments and inventions that aren’t on the market yet. Italian journalists who visited the exhibition confirmed this with absolute certainty.
SIMONE CANTARINI, JOURNALIST, NOVA AGENCY:
- What impressed us the most is the Nur Alem pavilion. The pavilion tells about the history of the country's energy and its future. The use of new forms of energy like solar, wind and biomass energy will make Kazakhstan, which is a major oil producer today, the advanced state in the field of renewable energy and the green economy.
GIOSETTA CIUFFA, HEAD OF SPECCHIO ECONOMICO MAGAZINE:
- Of course, the impression remained good. The Kazakh pavilion is not only very beautiful, but accessible and understandable to everyone. Including those who aren’t familiar with the theme of the exhibition. // The expo deserves a visit, and Astana should also be looked at. I think that now there is a good reason to do the both.
