The businessman from Russia Yuri Shurygin became the three-millionth visitor at EXPO 2017, the press office Astana EXPO-2017 reported.

He happened to be at EXPO occasionally. Mr. Shurygin came to Kazakhstan in order to participate in another event, which is well known as Eurasian week. He bought a ticket without knowing that it is a special one. Luckily, the machine counting the number of visitors identified him as a three millionth guest.

"I ran away from the Eurasian week to take a walk and see the pavilions. On the eve, I was here as part of the official delegation, but could not see many things. I really want to visit the Russia’s pavilion. Yesterday I could not get it because of the big line. In addition, I want to visit the pavilion of the African countries and the Uzbekistan pavilion. People say that there is very good cuisine", told Yury Shurygin to reporters.

Mr. Shurygin is 38 years old. He is a family man, who has two daughters. He regrets that his family could not visit EXPO-2017. Nur Alem and thematic pavilions with exhibits in 3D made the brightest impression.

"There have not been events of this magnitude in Russia yet. But there is a chance to win a competition for a specialized EXPO exhibition in Yekaterinburg in 2020. We will be "sick" for this and "keep our fists", said Yury Shurygin.

The Chairman of the Board of JSC «National Company Astana Expo 2017» Akhmetzhan Essimov warmly welcomed the three millionth visitor.

"As we said before, almost 15% of visitors to EXPO are foreign tourists. In addition, among the foreigners most of all, of course, are our Russian neighbors," said Akhmetzhan Essimov.

Mr. Essimov noted that the exhibition had a beneficial effect on the economy of Kazakhstan and "has become a powerful incentive for tourism development." Akhmetzhan Essimov presented memorable gifts to the guest and wished good impressions at the exhibition.
