For its entry in Expo Milan 2015, Belarus entered a pavilion dubbed The Wheel of Life. The non-commercial universal exposition is a thematic exhibition and process that will run from May 1 to October 31, 2015. This year's sustainable and technological theme is Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. The enormous exhibition site is expecting 20 million visitors and will host over 130 exhibitors.

The Belorussian contribution represents the republic's natural resources including bread, salt and water. The grassy hill features a large wooden wheel cutting through it, providing a pathway for civilians. Two galleries will exist to promote agricultural issues and future national strategies. The elevated water wheel creates a ground level waterfall. The main area includes a range of diverse salts and educational information.
