At the meeting, it became known that EXPO 2017 will be covered by China Radio International. The head of the broadcast centre stressed that the CRI has a lot of experience in such events. The materials will help to acquaint the Russian-speaking population with the socio-economic development of China. In addition, Wang Jinzhen, Vice Chairman of China Council for the Promotion of the International Trade, noted the importance of covering EXPO in the media for the promotion of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative.
It should be reminded that Expo2017.com website has already told about five reasons why the forthcoming Astana EXPO 2017 exhibition is of interest to the Chinese. Among the main reasons - the upcoming concert of Dimash Kudaibergen, after whose participation in "I'm a singer" contest, China was swept by a real "Dimashemania". The director of the Industry and Tourism Department of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan Marat Igali promised that a 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 animation film about Dimash Kudaibergen at EXPO 2017. Earlier, about the concert of the singer at the exhibition, in the interview to the Chinese TV channel told the Minister of Culture and Sports of Kazakhstan, Arystanbek Mukhamediuly.
It is also expected that within the framework of Astana EXPO 2017 an exhibition of the legendary Terracotta Army will take place.
The pavilion of China itself will be fully completed by the end of May and will be one of the largest expositions of the exhibition. The main focus this country intends to make on the achievements with which it is possible to receive electricity and nuclear energy from the water. The largest at EXPO 2017 is also expected to be a delegation from China. Xinjiang Week, along with the “Year of China’s Tourism in Kazakhstan” and the National Day of China in Astana will be held at the Chinese pavilion of the exhibition.
Among the honoured guests of the exhibition will be the President of China Xi Jinping.
However, not everyone is happy about the increased attention to the Chinese side in Kazakhstan. For instance, the blogger Anuar Kurmanov has reported that in order to service 350 thousand Chinese citizens, who would attend world specialised exhibition Astana Expo 2017 for free, the authorities of Kazakhstan have allocated funds from the budget and in this connection expressed his outrage.
