Turkey will promote Aegean province of Izmir's candidacy for EXPO 2015 during the meeting.

State Minister Mehmet Aydin will accompany Gul during his stay in France between November 25th and 27th.

Since French President Nicolas Sarkozy will be in China, French PM Francois Fillon will pay a courtesy visit to Gul on November 27th.

In May 2006, Turkey submitted an official letter to BIE regarding Izmir's candidacy to host EXPO 2015 under the theme "New Routes to a Better World/Health for All."

The BIE will select the host country in March 2008. Italian city of Milan is the other candidate.
