Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev is not pleased with the course of preparation for the international exhibition EXPO-2017, Tengrinews.kz reports.

“You have all failed the organizational part. There is no common management in preparation of the EXPO. Everyone is a manager and there is nobody accountable for anything. This is happening even in spite of the fact that I had established a corporation responsible for the process and nobody was supposed to be meddling in there,” Nazarbayev said at the meeting on further development of Astana right after the report of Prime-Minister Serik Akhmetov on preparation for the EXPO-2017.

At the meeting on preparation for the EXPO-2017 on December 6, 2012 the President instructed the government to ensure transparency of financing.

“We should not just take the money from the budget and spend it. If we do it this way, our citizens will have a negative attitude. Instead, we need a conscious, proper and well-thought-through approach. First of all, we have to clearly understand how much money we need and how much over the budget this sum can run and, thus, how much private investments are required. It can’t be decided straight away, but we have to know at least some preliminary numbers. Secondly, we need to get all the sources involved, including the state-private partnership, and start attracting private investors and sponsors available in Kazakhstan,” Nursultan Nazarbayev said back then and instructed the Presidential Administration, the Government and Astana Administration to jointly work on this issue.

“As there will be significant amounts of money allocated for that, we need to think through the financing mechanisms. Money use has to be transparent, both in case of the money coming from the state budget and from other sources. We need to enhance control over the money,” the President said.

Talgat Yermegiyayev was appointed chairman of the specially established Astana EXPO-2017 National Company in the beginning of January.
