Regione Liguria is the protagonist of Padiglione Italia at Expo Astana 2017, dedicated to the themes of sustainability, innovation and energy efficiency. During the week from July 12 to 17, the Regione Liguria and Liguria International presented the Ligurian strategies and energy excellence to thirty Kazakh operators in the sector.
“We have decided – explained the Regional Assessor for Economic Development and Energy Edoardo Rixi – to be present at the Expo of Astana to give continuity to the positive experience of the Expo of Milan and to strengthen the presence of Liguria in the field of international events, by fostering our companies especially in the innovation sector. Kazakhstan is an interesting country for our businesses, with a widening economy, as evidenced by the transition from the 51st position two years ago to the current 35th in the World Bank’s Doing Business report”.
