Spain’s Pavilion at Expo Astana: Window for Promoting Itself in Central Asia

ASTANA – Spain was putting on Thursday the finishing touches on its pavilion at Expo 2017 Astana in Kazakhstan, looking to market itself as both a country and leader in the renewable energy sector for the Central Asian region.

Expo Astana – whose theme is “Future Energy” – will be inaugurated on Friday with 115 countries and 22 international organizations participating.

The Expo will run until Sept. 10 in the Kazakh capital.

Carmen Bueno, head of the Spanish pavilion, said the aim was to highlight Spain as a “pioneer, innovator and visionary” in the clean energy industry.

“The exhibition can help spread awareness about the work of Spanish firms and place them in the international market,” Bueno told reporters.

Since the visitors will be mainly from Central Asia, the Spanish pavilion, in addition to showcasing the country’s experience in the area of renewable energy, is also intended to reinforce Brand Spain, Bueno said.

With “Energy for the Planet” as its theme, the pavilion will be inaugurated on Saturday by Spain’s King Felipe VI, who will be accompanied by Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis and Culture Secretary Fernando Benzo.

The pavilion’s entrance is adorned with a huge red and yellow mural titled “Como pavesas encendidas” (Like Burning Ashes) by artist Alberto Corazon, depicting the power of energy symbolized by fire.
