On November 18, the EXPO-2017 Commissioner Rapil Zhoshybayev met with Ambassador of Cuba to Kazakhstan, Commissioner of the national section of the Cuban pavilion at the EXPO-2017 Carlos Enrique Valdes de la Concepcion in Astana.

The sides shared opinions about the prospects of future cooperation in the green energy sphere and signed an agreement on Cuban participation in the EXPO-2017.

Cuba has participated in EXPO exhibitions since the first one in London in 1852 (as a Spanish colony). It has become the 14th country that signed an agreement on the participation. However, 53 world countries and 11 international organizations have officially confirmed their participation in the Exhibition in Astana.

The Ambassador noted these events are a measure of a high level of political relations between the two countries. Cuba understands the relevance of the theme of the EXPO-2017 and plans to produce 24% of the total energy from renewable energy sources by 2030.
