discount soft cialis644" />In order to boost its application to host the World Universal Exhibition EXPO 2020, Yekaterinburg will use diplomatic mechanisms, which were discussed at Governor Evgeny Kuivashev's September meeting with heads of Yekaterinburg-based diplomatic missions.

It was decided that meetings would be held on a regular basis in order to best assess how the city's EXPO 2020 application is progressing, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Kuivashev said that the application was a top priority because the exhibition would promote the city and region's further development. The exhibition usually boosts the development of its host city, which is what happened with China's Shanghai and South Korea's Yeosu.

'We have about 400 days left before the voting is closed. This year's main event is the creation of the application portfolio for Yekaterinburg; it's a dossier that covers all the aspects of the city's life, that gives data on its infrastructure, and that offers a draft budget for the prospective event as well as proposes ways of using the exhibition infrastructure after the event is over,' Deputy Director-General of the NGO EXPO 2020 Application Committee Andrei Nevsky said, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Nevsky said two previous Yekaterinburg presentations in Paris were a success and that its July presentation was declared the best among applying cities. The next presentation will take place in November and a summary of candidate cities will be presented to the BIE members in early 2013.
