Slovakia to present at Expo Zaragoza 2008

Slovakia will present its strong areas - water resources and sustainable development - at the international Expo Zaragoza 2008 in Spain, according to Slovak exposition's general commissioner Dušan Horniak.

Expo Zaragoza 2008 differs from its previous annuals in that apart from a traditional exposition part, there will be a scientific discussion forum, the aim of which is to bring together experts, the general public and businessmen to create a joint platform for discussions on how to conserve water.

This so-called small world exhibition will take place June 14-September 14, 2008 in Zaragoza - in the period between two successive world expositions - EXPO 2005 Aichi (Japan) and EXPO 2010 Shanghai (China). The central theme of Spain's exposition will be "Water and Sustainable Development", and between 6-8 million visitors are expected. TASR
