For the first time in the history of EXPO, a pavilion of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization will be presented at the world specialized exhibition in Astana. Its presentation was held at the SCO headquarters in Beijing, the "Khabar 24" TV channel reports.
Secretary General of the organization Rashid Alimov told about the concept of the pavilion. He noted that the SCO for the first time in history takes part in the work of the world exhibition. The beginning of the work of EXPO 2017, according to Rashid Alimov, will coincide with the meeting of the Council of Heads of the SCO member states. It is expected that important decisions will be taken at the meeting concerning the future of the international organization.
"This is the first time such a pavilion has been granted, we are very grateful to the government of Kazakhstan, first of all personally to President Nursultan Abishevich Nazarbayev for the invitation. This pavilion is 357 square meters. It is adjacent to the pavilions of China, India, Malaysia and Algeria. This is a fairly solid neighbourhood, which certainly is great responsibility. Therefore, we are preparing very seriously,"Alimov noted.
Let us remind, the SCO pavilion will demonstrate the organisation’s contribution to the environmental improvement and support for environmental programs. In addition, an international marathon will be held in Astana under the auspices of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). It will be one of the largest sporting events during the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017.
