“We were glad to find out that the visitors didn't mistake Slovakia for the former joint state (Czechoslovakia) and that they’re full of praise,” said Roman Hrúzik and Boris Spišiak of the EVKA agency, which is handling the Slovak pavilion at EXPO Shanghai.

The EXPO will be officially launched on April 30 and its gates are due to open for the public between May 1 and October 31.
