President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev met in Beijing with the President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping. This was reported in the press service of Akorda. The meeting was held within the framework of "One belt, One road” forum.
"The leader of the PRC confirmed his readiness to go to Kazakhstan with an official visit, take part in the SCO summit and the opening of the international specialized exhibition EXPO 2017. The heads of state also discussed a number of issues of bilateral cooperation, focusing on increasing trade and cooperation in the fields of industry, innovation, transport and energy,” reported in the press service of Kazakh leader.
Let us remind that about the fact that the President of China Xi Jinping will be among the honoured guests of the world specialised exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 was reported in mid-April.
Expo2017.com website has already told about five reasons why the forthcoming exhibition Astana EXPO 2017 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".
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.
It is also known that the informational support for EXPO will be provided by China Radio International.
It should be reminded that earlier a Chinese citizen found himself in the centre of a scandal in Kazakhstan, when he photographed himself after climbing a monument to three legendary Kazakh Judges. Internet users have condemned the actions of the Chinese, noting that a massive influx 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 point out the fact that at the same time, many Chinese will visit the exhibition for free.
In early May, it became known that China will receive two pavilions at EXPO.
