“I want to tell you a big pleasure that just now it became known that we won the next very big victory for our country. Vote showed that Astana received the vast majority of EXPO members, which is 103 out of 161 participated countries and won the city of Liege. Thus, Kazakhstan gained one more recognition as the country, as the city which can hold such large-scale events. It is a great honor, big pleasure to Kazakhstan because there will arrive representatives of more than 100 states. They will build the pavilions at this exhibition, but of course the main load is ours, but they will build, and it everything remains at us,” Kazakhstan President said.
