Slovakia will present its mineral and thermal water riches along with its high level of water management at the international EXPO Zaragoza 2008 in Spain between June 14 and September 14, the TASR newswire wrote.

According to Slovak Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek, Slovakia – calling itself the Spring of Europe - has a great opportunity to showcase itself as country aspiring to preserve its natural wealth. The Slovak pavilion will acquaint the expected seven million EXPO visitors with the many ways in which Slovakia's high-quality water management is applied. It will also highlight the country's experience with water as a source of energy and present water-related recreational and therapeutic facilities, said Jahnátek.

Visitors from all over the world will be able to taste Slovak mineral water brands such as Lucka, Budiš, Fatra, Sulinka, Ľubovnianka, Kláštorná, Mitická, Čerínska and Brusnianska. The Slovak pavilion will also provide general information about Slovakia.

Dušan Horniak, head of the Slovak exhibition, told TASR that he had approached manufacturers to begin negotiations with those interested in taking part. There are still opportunities to showcase several more Slovak mineral springs at the exposition.

The choice of Zaragoza as the venue for the EXPO was largely due to the Ebro River, which serves as a source of energy. More than 100 countries are expected to take part in the 192-day exposition, which will use only renewable sources of energy. TASR
