The president of the United States of America Donald Trump will not attend the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 in Astana. MIA "Kazinform" reports this with the reference to the US Ambassador to Kazakhstan, George Krol.
"We know that the delegations from the SCO member countries will be very high-ranking, in particular, the presidents of China and Russia are expected to come to the exhibition. However, our president will not be able to visit the EXPO because of the tight schedule", - the ambassador said.
He specified that the composition of the American delegation has not yet been determined, and the timing of its arrival in Kazakhstan is also unknown.
"I and maybe some of my colleagues from the US State Department will attend the opening ceremony of the exhibition. Scientists, statesmen, congressmen or senators can also be in the delegation", - Krol said.
According to the publication, Anthony Pahigian who is the advisor to the Press, Culture and Education Ambassador, promised that the US pavilion will be presented to the public as soon as possible. Up to this point, specific details regarding the American pavilion will not be disclosed.
Let us remind that during the presentation of credentials to Donald Trump by the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the United States Yerzhan Kazykhanov, the US President highly appreciated the achievements made by Kazakhstan during the years of independence, as well as the contribution of the Republic to ensuring international and regional security. Trump expressed his interest in expanding Kazakh-American relations and expressed support for the upcoming international specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 in Astana.
The US signed a contract of participation in the world exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 in the Kazakh capital on February 24. American diplomats even dedicated a special ecological action to the exhibition, in which they call on Kazakhstanis to refuse free plastic bags in supermarkets.
In addition to the developments from world-renowned American companies, it is expected that in the US pavilion will present at once 8 startups on the "Energy of the Future" at the EXPO 2017.

The businessman owns a park of 200 cars with the inscription"Welcome to Kazakhstan". The entrepreneur posted an absolutely free advertising for the exhibition with an invitation to visit his native country.
