The opening ceremony of the US pavilion took place at the EXPO

12 June

American pavilion was opened on the site of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. The main subjects of the exposition are people as a source of endless energy, the information portal Tengrinews.kz reports.

The US pavilion can be found near the service entrance to the exhibition site. It covers an area of 1100 square meters and consists of three halls: "Energy Space", "Energy of Life" and "Post-show zone".

At the opening ceremony the guests were introduced to 40 young Americans - students-envoys. They speak a lot of foreign languages including Russian and Kazakh.

"We are pleased to present our pavilion to people from all over the world and Kazakhstan. The source of America's endless energy lies within people. We hope that the guests will enjoy communication with ambassadorial students and interactive displays of our pavilion", - said Joshua Walker, president of the pavilion.

The students solemnly vowed to patiently serve the US pavilion and its guests without forgetting about patriotism and enthusiasm.

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 campaign to the exhibition calling on the people of Kazakhstan 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.

It should be noted that earlier it became known that an open day was being held within the framework of the promotion of EXPO 2017 at the Kazakh Embassy in the United States.

US President Donald Trump was reported to be interested in the exhibition but later Ambassador George Krol said that the American leader will not come to the EXPO exhibition because of the tight schedule. Shortly before, during the presentation of credentials by the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the United States of America Yerzhan Kazykhanov to the American leader, the US president highly appreciated the achievements made by Kazakhstan in the years of independence as well as the republic's contribution to international and regional security. Trump then expressed interest in expanding Kazakh-American relations and expressed support for the upcoming international specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 in Astana.

In addition to Kazakhstani diplomats, the Astana EXPO 2017 exhibition in the US is also advertised by Arman Belasar, a native of Kazakhstan, who lives in New York. The businessman owns a park of 200 cars with signatures "Welcome to Kazakhstan" on them. The entrepreneur posted an absolutely free advertising for the exhibition with an invitation to visit his native country.

It should be noted that not a single cent will not be spent from the state treasury for the US participation in the world specialized exhibition EXPO - funding comes from sponsorship fees.

Famous designer and architect from the US Jeffrey Bradfield will be among the American visitors to the EXPO exhibition. In addition, Kazakh national horse games "kokpar" will take place during the exhibition in Astana where American cowboys will take part as well.
