Slovenia in Focus at Expo Today


Slovenian Day is the highlight of the country's six-month presentation at Expo, aimed at promoting the country's assets and fostering new business ties.

The day will start with the raising of the Slovenian and Italian flags and playing of the two countries' national anthems. PM Cerar will welcome the visitors with an address.

The delegation will first visit the Slovenian pavilion and then the Italian one, where the Milan Charter will be signed. The manifesto unites all nations in the fight against undernutrition and efforts to protect people's right to food.

In the afternoon, the Slovenian pavilion will be in the spotlight, where addresses by Cerar and Počivalšek will be followed by a cultural programme.

The accompanying programme will include all-day dance, singing and acrobatic performances and a cooking show in front of the pavilion, and culminate in a concert by the world-renowned Slovenian a cappella choir Perpetuum Jazzile.

Over 140 countries are being presented at this year's Expo, whose slogan is "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life". In the six months of the exhibition, some 20 million visitors are expected.

Slovenia is being represented as a green, active and healthy country with its own pavilion, which also includes a business centre.
