"We must solve all the problems related to the World EXPO. Most of the objects, as we see, have been completed, they are ready for operation. At the same time, the construction works continue in the Congress Center and hotels. The objects must be commissioned in time", the Head of State said.

According to the President, it is necessary to raise the capital culture to a high level.

"The impression of the guests will be formed from the moment they arrive at the airport. How they will be met at the airport, railway stations, what will be the order. Keep all objects clean. Where they can have a snack, how they were received, how their employees at the railway station served them. All this is not trivial. From there begins the culture, the impression of a person from the country where he arrived. This applies to all the outlets in Astana. We need to raise the culture of the capital", the President stressed.

In this regard, the President gave instructions to all bodies to eliminate certain errors that concern the organizations of EXPO-2017.

At the same time, the issue of logistics remains on special control.

"The airports of the cities of Astana, Karaganda, Kokshetau are reserve, so there must also be order. A significant flow will go by motor vehicles. Moreover, we expect a large flow from our regions. It is necessary to organize roadside service along the highways leading to Astana and ensure order", the President addressed the Minister for Investments and Development of Kazakhstan.

As N. Nazarbayev said, it is expected that EXPO will be visited daily from 30 to 120 thousand people.

We remind that today Astana has held a meeting on the preparation for the international specialized exhibition, as well as on the development of Astana under the chairmanship of Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev.
