International Exhibition Bureau Secretary General Vicente Gonzales Loscertales congratulated President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbaev on successful hosting of EXPO-2017 in Astana and passed him warm comments of the Exhibition participant countries, as per ‘Kazakhstanskaya Pravda” Newspaper.
“I continue receiving comments of the participant countries stating that EXPO was a bright event and the most successful Specialized Exhibition in history. I am positive that it will promote further development of all the specialized EXPOs. No doubt, the success of EXPO in Astana was achieved thanks to your personal support and active participation in implementation of this bright project. Your Government and Astana EXPO-2017 National Company headed by Akhmetzhan Yessimov did their best to not only to make the Exhibition infrastructure ready to receive first guests but also to make all the international participants feel the special Kazakhstani hospitality.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for the honor you did me by awarding me the Order of Dostyk of the Republic of Kazakhstan. I was deeply moved when I was informed of the decision, and I must confess that an opportunity to work closely together with you was the most precious experience in my career. I hope to visit Astana City to personally see the Exhibition Area and acquaint with the EXPO-2017 Heritage created not only for the people of Kazakhstan but for the whole world,” the telegram says.
Vicente Gonzales Loscertales expressed his readiness to continue close interaction between Kazakhstan and International Exhibition Bureau, as per the Presidential Press Service.
