Holding an international exhibition EXPO-2017 in Astana has already paid off, said Nursultan Nazarbayev at a press conference in Akorda.

"The money that has been spent has already returned due to attendance and at the expense of tourists who filled all Astana hotels, restaurants, concert halls. The business got a boost and revenues to the budget of Astana increased, businesspersons earned money. 1,400 companies participated in the construction and it gave multiplicative effect. I think that it was a good event from all sides. People have earned money, the budget has received its own money" said the President.

The head of state noted that Kazakhstan built a whole district in a very short time to hold this international fair.
