Fidel Castro’s son impressed by the size of EXPO

20 June

The work of the World Scientists and Engineers Congress WSEC-2017, organized as part of the specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017, was attended by Fidel Castro’s son - Cuban nuclear physicist Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart. About this, with reference to the press service of akim of Astana, website reports.

"It is an honour for me to take the floor as speaker at such an important Congress, that will help to strengthen the mindset and joint efforts of scientists and engineers from different countries in the energy and production sectors. WSEC is an important platform for the exchange of experience in the field of high-tech energy technologies, best known achievements and trends in modern energy,” the scientist said.

In the press service of akim noted that this is the second visit of the Cuban to Astana - the first time a famous physicist visited the capital of Kazakhstan in 2015.

"I haven’t had the opportunity to visit the exhibition yet, but judging by what I have already seen, it is indeed a significant event for Kazakhstan. The territory of EXPO impresses with its size, and hopefully in the near future will be able to more closely get acquainted with all modern technologies in the field of energy, presented in the pavilions. I believe that science is part of the cultural development of every human being: many political leaders had experience in the field of science. As far as I know, the president of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, as a political leader, has scientific knowledge," said Castro Diaz-Balart.

The nuclear scientist expressed the hope that WSEC-2017 will create opportunities for the world scientific research institutions to move forward, serve as a place for the development of new business opportunities and analysis of prospects in the  exchange of experience.

Let us remind, the theme of the World Scientists and Engineers Congress WSEC-2017 is “Future energy: innovative scenarios and methods of their implementation”.
