Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), in partnership with the Embassy of Turkmenistan in Paris, organized the online training session within the framework of a long-term cooperation program between the BIE and Turkmenistan.
According to Trend news agency’s Tuesday report, over 30 officials representing five ministries of Turkmenistan and business organizations, as well as student groups from universities in Turkmenistan participated in the training.
BIE officials delivered 8 dedicated sessions, including an introduction to the BIE and the four types of Expos organized under its auspices (World Expos, Specialised Expos, Horticultural Expos, and the Triennale di Milano), and the process of organizing and participating in the Expos.
“The communication and technical aspects of participating in Expos, as well as the opportunities and benefits of hosting Expos and participating in these global events, were also addressed,” BIE representative told Trend.
The session was opened by Dimitri Kerkentzes, the Secretary-General of the BIE, alongside Dovletgeldi Rejepov, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Turkmenistan, and Shohrat Jumayev, Ambassador of Turkmenistan to France.
BIE is the intergovernmental organization embodying the commitment of its 169 Member States to lead, promote, and foster Expos, whose principal purpose is the education of the public.
