From June 10th to September 10th 2017, Astana (the capital of Kazakhstan) is hosting the international exhibition EXPO 2017, under the slogan “Future Energy”. The choice of the theme shows how much consideration Kazakhstan gives to global important topics, such as environmental approach, renewable energies and energy efficiency.
Ticino has important relations with Kazakhstan and, for that reason, the Chamber of commerce, industry, handicrafts, and services of Canton Ticino (Cc-Ti) and the Lugano Commodity Trading Association (LCTA) decided to take part to the Expo. The two organizations are coordinating several events at the Swiss Pavilion from September 6th to September 8th 2017, in cooperation with the Canton and the City of Lugano. The purpose of the project is to develop the relationship among, from one side, Ticino, Cc-Ti, LCTA and the City of Lugano, and, from the other side, Kazakhstan. Companies coming from Ticino, and active not only in Switzerland, but also internationally, will have the possibility to present their activities during conferences and seminars.
