Expo 2017

 

 

Four years later, the 2017 Expo will open at Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. The theme of the international Expo is "Future Technology," which explains Kazakhstan’s recent focus on the development of green technology and investment on alternative energy resources.

On November 7th of this year, the Kazakhstan government sent the International Exhibition Organization, which is responsible for large scale world fairs, the registration file for the 2017 Expo. The registration file contains information about the financial means of supporting the Expo, the legal status of the organizers, site construction plans, and more. With the registration file, the Kazakhstan government has clearly stated its plans to develop Astana within the next four years.

The International Fair Organization held in Paris, on November 22nd of 2012, selected Astana to be the location of the 2017 Expo. Because the Expo allows Kazakhstan to invest not only in its culture, but also create a large infrastructure for renewable energy research, the event is expected to have positive influences on Kazakhstan’s economy. Moreover, as the first of former Soviet Union countries to hold such a large Expo, Kazakhstan is now recognized as a economical and cultural power in a global network.

However, concern arises about the extent of Kazakhstan’s progress and the rapid development of Astana. The changes that Kazakhstan will go through remain as a constant interest to the general public.
