ASTANA, 8 June (BelTA) – The Belarusian pavilion at the Astana EXPO 2017 will be maximally interactive, Chairman of the State Science and Technology Committee Alexander Shumilin told the media on 8 June, BelTA has learned.

A special infokiosk of the Belarusian pavilion will feature several dozens of sci-tech projects. Information on any of them can be downloaded on any mobile device.

“Belarus is a high-tech country. We have a lot to offer. We have an open economy. In order to advance our goods to other markets, we, of course, need to advertise ourselves in the international arena. For this purpose we are showcasing our best projects here,” noted Alexander Shumilin.

“We will present the Belarusian-Chinese Industrial Park as a venue for possible investment and the setting up of joint companies. We will also position Belarus as one of the countries making part of the new Silk Road,” the chairman of the State Science and Technology Committee said.

Speaking about potential economic benefits from the exhibition, he noted that it is early to speak about any concrete figures. However, keeping in mind other sci-tech exhibitions, it can be said that one invested ruble rings Br5-10 in concluded contracts on average. “The Astana EXPO is a universal opportunity for the country to present it in front on more than 100 other countries,” Alexander Shumilin said.

The Belarusian pavilion will display an electric bus, and photocells to generate solar energy, which can be applied on practically any surface: metal, concrete, glass.

The pavilion will also feature modern LED technology. They are cost-effective and applied in many industries, including greenhouses. Another novelty is a universal variable wavelength laser for use in medicine.

The official opening of the Belarusian pavilion is slated for 10 June. Currently, work is being completed on the design of the expo.

Belarus, as a country with advanced mechanical engineering, will present relevant equipment too.

The Astana EXPO 2017 will be taking place in Kazakhstan from 10 June to 10 September. It is expected that the event will be attended by 2.5-5 million people from the CIS and non-CIS countries.

EXPO 2017 will be held under the motto Future Energy and will highlight one of the most important themes today – alternative energy resources. The exhibition will demonstrate ideas and solutions for renewable energy resources, the green economy initiative in the form of buildings that generate energy, smart houses, electric cars, vehicles running on bio fuel and many more.
