Expo 2017 Astana, with the theme of “Future Energy”, was inaugurated on Friday with an opening speech by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, and with a lights and fireworks show that lit up the sky of the Central Asian nation’s ultramodern capital.

Seventeen heads of state and government from around the world, including King Felipe VI of Spain and leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization member countries, consisting of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan and India, attended the inauguration.
One object of the visitors’ admiration is the Nur Alem pavilion, symbol of the expo and the world’s largest spherical construction measuring 80 meters (262 feet) in diameter.
Also onstage to amaze was a multimedia show at the capital’s Congress Center with robots and humans moving in perfect harmony to act out the energy theme with a contemporary aesthetic.
