Alexandre Bocquillon, Deputy Commissioner of Monaco’s Pavilion in Astana, welcomed the President of Astana EXPO-2017, Akhmetzhan Yessimov, to the Monaco Pavilion on Friday, May 12.

Mr Bocquillon and his team presented in detail the concept developed by Monaco around the theme of “Reflecting the Future”. Work on the Pavilion’s exhibits is progressing at a steady pace and will be ready for the opening of Astana EXPO 2017, whose theme is Energy of the Future, scheduled for June 10.

Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan. Monaco has developed close trade and economic ties with the central Asian state over the last few years, and so the Principality’s Pavilion is an extension of this excellent relationship.
