By Daniar Mukhtarov - Trend:

All facilities of the Astana EXPO-2017 will be commissioned in late 2016, according to Talgat Yermegiyayev, the chairman of the board of JSC Astana EXPO-2017 National Company.

Yermegiyayev made the remarks at a briefing held on March 31.

"We have a strategic plan, there is a schedule of work, and I assure you that in 2016 we will commission all objects of the EXPO," he said during the briefing.

He also stressed that Kazakhstan has little time before the start of the Astana EXPO-2017, judging by the scale and grandeur of the construction.

"And two years is a very short time," he added.

Astana was elected the venue for holding the international specialized exhibition EXPO in 2017.

Kazakhstan proposed the topic "Future Energy" for the organization of the EXPO-2017 in Astana.

The topic is aimed at finding ways to qualitative changes in the energy sector, first of all including the development of alternative energy sources and new ways of transporting the energy.
