Rapil Zhoshybayev, First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan - Commissioner of the International specialized exhibition EXPO-2017 will open the pavilion.
The International Energy Week is held in the UAE capital for the seventh year and is a major annual event in the world, designed to promote the development of renewable energy, energy efficiency and water resources and waste sectors. For our country - it is the most important space for open and fruitful dialogue on alternative energy development; it is a good opportunity to invite future exhibitors to participate in EXPO-2017.
The theme of EXPO-2017 “Future Energy” has much in common with the main issues of the summit. Already in 2017 Kazakhstan will become a large-scale global platform for constructive debate in which countries, companies and various organisations will present their views and offer solutions to the major challenges of modern energy.
It is expected that Kazakhstan’s delegation will also visit the city of Masdar and meet with the organizing committee of Dubai EXPO-2020.
