The Monaco Inter Expo team visited Astana, Republic of Kazakhstan, from October 25 to November 4 as part of Monaco’s forthcoming participation in the 2017 Astana International Exposition.
The trip made it possible to see the progress of work on the site of the exhibition and to visit the lot that will host the Pavilion of Monaco. The visit also provided an opportunity to initiate a number of legal and logistical matters in preparation for the Exhibition in Kazakhstan.
The theme of the Pavillon de Monaco: “Reflecting the Future”, has also been filed with the organiser.
Mr Julien Cellario, Commissioner General of the Monaco Pavilion, met with members of the organisation, including Mr Alisher Pirmetov, Vice-President of the Council for Finance and Budget Planning and Mr Akhmetzhan Yessimov, President of the Council Astana EXPO-2017. He stressed Monaco’s determination to present to the visitors an Innovative Pavilion.
To date, Monaco is one of the first countries to have finalised its participation in Expo 2017.
