This exhibition is a chance for Slovakia to present itself abroad. Economy Minister Vazil Hudák expressed satisfaction with Slovak pavilion – as quoted by the SITA newswire. “This exhibition is a chance to present ourselves as a country that is dynamic, young, innovative. This is the main message we want to keep,” Hudák said.

Slovakia paid €5 million without VAT for building the country pavilion. “It is the second lowest sum, after Romania – so one could say it is a lot of music for a little money, as we tend to say in Slovakia,” he added.
