High Commissioner's Message
May 25, 2017
The inauguration of the International Expo, and within it that of the pavilion of France, have never been closer. We are happy and proud to soon be able to present the results of a long collaboration between the French and Kazakh teams. Their sustained cooperation on such an event is by essence the symbol of the ever-stronger bilateral ties between our countries.
On Monday, May 22nd, the General Commission of France organised a press conference in order to present the French partners that are participating in the organization of the pavilion. This conference sparked interest among the journalists and was an opportunity to reaffirm that the pavilion of France will be open on the 10th of June under the best conditions possible. We also unveiled certain elements within the pavilion whose innovating character, I hope, will contribute to its success.
The commissioners reaffirmed this message of joy, that of proudly representing the efforts made in view of the energy transition, at the meeting of the Steering Committee on May 23. A little over two weeks before the inauguration, we trust in the great success of the Expo and will continue to work together in order to make sure that the 10th of June will be the first step towards this achievement.
