The President of Finland Sauli Niiniste will attend the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. This was announced by Roman Vasilenko, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Internet magazine "Vlast" informs.

"The President of Finland plans to visit Kazakhstan for the third time on June 19-21 to participate in the National Day of Finland at EXPO 2017", - Vasilenko said.

It includes the four largest technical universities in Finland - JAMK University of Applied Sciences, HAMK University of Applied Sciences, Tampere Adult Education Center and Lahti University of Applied Sciences.

In addition, in the period from July 18 to August 11, 2017 Joulupukki - the Finnish Santa Claus - will come to Astana from Lapland for the exhibition.
