Kazakhstan Internet Users joke about EXPO forced tickets sale

Let us remind that in a series of recent scandals, accompanying the exhibition there is the information on keeping money from salaries of Kazakhstanis for EXPO needs, and hundreds of reports on forced ticket sales, as well as information about the allocation of money from the state budget for servicing a large tourist delegation from China in Astana, many of whose members will visit the exhibition for free, and many other things that the organizers of the exhibition and officials do not usually comment on to the journalists in Kazakhstan, and what official media does not cover.

In addition, appeared new information on the coercion to buy tickets, this time from the North-Kazakhstan region, as well as a video, which shows the construction of a road in Astana from an expensive carbon.

Against the background of indicated scandals accompanying the exhibition, EXPO organizers have announced  the search for a PR manager. The corresponding announcement was posted by the director of the Public Relations Department of JSC "NC" “Astana EXPO-2017 "Sergey Kuyanov on his Facebook page.
