Expo2017.com website has already mentioned five reasons why the forthcoming Astana EXPO 2017 exhibition is interesting to the Chinese. Among the main reasons is the upcoming concert of Dimash Kudaibergen whose participation in the "I'm a singer"contest made China plunge into a real "Dimashemania". Earlier, the director of the Department of Industry and Tourism of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan Marat Igali promised that the popular singer would definitely take part in the exhibition. In addition to the concert itself, it is expected that an animation studio from Beijing will show an animated film about Dimash Kudaibergen at the EXPO 2017. Earlier Kazakhstan's Minister of Culture and Sports Arystanbek Mukhamediuly told about the concert of the singer at an exhibition in an interview with the Chinese television channel. Let us mention that there was a fight between the guards of the Central Concert Hall "Kazakhstan" and journalists at the concert of the singer in Astana. Commenting on this information, Minister Muhamediuly noted that he made appropriate conclusions before the exhibition. At the moment, the organizers of EXPO are working on the possibility of holding two concerts of Dimash Kudaibergen. This is due to the increased interest in the singer's performance both from foreign guests and people of Kazakhstan.
In addition, an exhibition of the legendary Terracotta Army will be held within the framework of Astana EXPO 2017.
Chinese pavilion itself will be fully completed by the end of May and will become one of the largest expositions of the exhibition. The main focus will be made on the achievements enabling to receive electricity and nuclear energy from water. The delegation from China is expected to be the largest one at EXPO 2017. The Chinese pavillion will host the Xinjiang Week "The Year of China's Tourism in Kazakhstan" and the National Day of China in Astana.
Chairman of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping will be one of the guests of honor at the exhibition.
It is also known that the information support of EXPO will be provided by the International Radio of China.
It should be noted that earlier a Chinese citizen found himself at the center of a scandal in Kazakhstan when he was photographed climbing a monument to Kazakh heroes. The network's users deeply criticized the actions of the Chinese noting what a massive inflow of tourists from China is expected during the world exhibition in Astana. Later it became known that the incident occurred on the territory of the People's Republic of China.
Another scandal is connected with the fact that, according to the information of Kazakhstan's bloggers, millions of tenge are allocated from the budget of Kazakhstan for servicing Chinese citizens during the EXPO. Users note the fact that at the same time many Chinese people will visit the exhibition for free.
