Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai reviewed the final preparations for Expo 2020 Dubai, scheduled to begin next month.

Taking to Twitter, he stressed that all the arrangements were in place for the mega six-month long event, which will begin on October 1.

“Our teams are ready and pavilions are complete for the world’s largest event since the outset of pandemic. The UAE is looking forward to welcoming people from 191 countries,” he said.

“The six months of the event will go down in history for the ideas and inventions that will benefit humanity for years to come,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, also took to Twitter to talk about the mega event.

“One month from today, the UAE will proudly host Expo 2020 Dubai, one of the world’s largest cultural events. Delivered under the guidance of my brother Mohammed bin Rashid, the event builds upon our nation’s longstanding history as a facilitator of cultural dialogue and exchange,” Sheikh Mohamed added.

Countries will not be clustered by their geography, but under Expo 2020’s three sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
