SLOVAKIA’s pavilion for the Expo 2008 exhibition in Zaragoza, Spain, is already finished.
Dušan Horniak, commissioner general for the country’s participation, told the SITA newswire that Slovakia was among the first countries and institutions to finish its exhibition hall.

Slovakia will spend €1.65 million in total for its presentation in Zaragoza. The country will exhibit on 461 square meters.

Slovakia will present itself as the “Spring of Europe” at the exhibition, which begins on June 14 and is focused on “water and sustainable development”.

“Slovakia wants to present itself as a country that protects its renewable sources, namely its mineral and thermal springs and water,” said Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek.

He hopes that participation in the exhibition will bring further investment, especially to tourism.
The ministry plans to present waterworks projects about Slovak rivers and Slovak mineral water springs at the exhibition.

Expo 2008 Zaragoza is one in a series of smaller exhibitions that take place between the larger Expo world exhibitions. The last Expo world exhibition was in Aichi, Japan in 2005. The next is being held in Shanghai in 2010.
