Alybaev added: “We can say that in this EXPO, the UAE became a model, because as you noticed the organizational level is very high. By using very modern, high technology, the UAE showed very good achievements. And we can say that the participation of Kyrgyzstan among other countries is also a great achievement. We noticed from the reaction of tourists that they admire, interested and they ask for information. For example, on working days 2-3,000 people and on weekends 5-6,000 visit our pavilion, this is the evidence that there is the interest in Kyrgyzstan and its nation.”

Since the start of the EXPO, the pavilion organized several big events, including the Kyrgyz Culture Days, on December 14-16 and the National Day of Kyrgyzstan, which was attended by the ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.


“This is also a big achievement for us. The authorities of the Emirates show the interest in Kyrgyzstan. Recently the Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan also visited our pavilion. And other representatives of the authorities also came and get acquainted with our culture, history, in general about Kyrgyzstan. The slogan of the Dubai EXPO is “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”. Therefore, we try to know more and receive more information for Kyrgyzstan, exchange information, attract investments. The tourism is the one of the branches of developing the economy, so we tell the visitors about tourism in Kyrgyzstan. The EXPO is going on in joyful atmosphere”.

“My name is Aibobek. I’m from Kazakhstan. We came with my daughter Nazim to EXPO from Abu Dhabi. We live in Abu Dhabi. In the UAE, we study in doctoral studies. Today we decided to visit EXPO and saw that there is a pavilion of Kyrgyzstan. We really liked that they indicated their musical instruments and information about what art they have with projectors, and I also liked the souvenir row, where they presented traditional clothes as souvenirs and of course I liked the elements that they indicated that they have, what Kyrgyzstan has, for example, golden runes from which they could make golden items. We also visited other countries’s pavilions like Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia and other the most important pavilions of the EXPO. We really like the atmosphere of the EXPO, we are happy, we learn a lot of new things and learn about many countries without visiting them thanks to this EXPO”.
