Over 100 countries and organisations will participate in EXPO 2017 Astana, and they will present their interpretations of its main theme. Thus their achievements in the fields of science, advanced technologies, management, innovative business models and changes in social attitudes will be shown.
Formulating the theme of EXPO, its organisers assumed that modern civilisation couldn’t exist without energy. Energy is necessary for all domains of human activity, and access to it enhances dynamical social development. Energy is one of the main factors of economic, cultural and social development, and its stable production and right use builds a sustainable economy. Energy is key for every branch of economy and discovering new energy sources gives societies and countries a chance for development.read about EXPO 2017

Poland at EXPO
EXPO exhibitions are among the most prestigious events organised on an international scale.
In line with the EXPO main theme – “Future Energy” – we are building the concept of Polish presence at Astana EXPO 2017 around the motto: “Creative people, smart energy”. Thus we will present Poland as a country active on the international arena, a modern one with huge potential of hardworking and well-educated people, a country which is an example of spectacular success of economic and political transformation, a country where new and innovative technologies and solutions are implemented, and people respect their tradition and history. The contents presented during EXPO will be tailored to the interests of the audience – the citizens of Kazakhstan who will make up 85% of visitors. We are going to present our achievements and technological solutions in the areas of clean coal technology and afforestation – topics that are of special importance in the context of development of the energy sector in Kazakhstan.
For us the coming EXPO, which for the first time is taking place in Central Asia, is particularly important. For the first time in the history of Polish participation in EXPO, Polish entrepreneurs interested in promoting their products and services at EXPO will have an opportunity finance their participation from the European funds. The financial support will allow entrepreneurs to, i.a., participate in trade fairs, economic missions, organise studio visits, and produce information and promotion materials. What is more, Astana EXPO 2017 takes place just before the selection of organiser of the next international exhibition in 2022, and Poland is one of the candidates; we want to use EXPO 2017 to get support for our candidacy.Read about Poland at EXPO
