Sheikh Mohammed announces countdown for Expo 2020 Dubai

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

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced the start of the countdown for Expo 2020 Dubai.

In 100 days, the UAE will be the first country in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region to host a World Expo. Expo 2020 Dubai will run from October 1, 2021 until March 31, 2022 under the slogan “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.

The event is expected to attract more than 25 million visitors from all over the world, aiming to drive collaboration and innovation to develop real-life solutions.

Sheikh Mohammed said: “Expo 2020 Dubai will provide the space for the largest and most inclusive cultural and knowledge exchange in the world.”

He noted that “Expo 2020 Dubai will pave the roadmap for key economic, development and cultural trends of the post-Covid-19 era.”

“People from every corner of the globe are welcome to join the once-in-a-lifetime inspiring and enlightening experience that pays testament to human creativity. We will meet at Expo 2020 Dubai,” he added.

“The global community is preparing for a new stage of collaboration by harnessing science and technology to combat the pandemic. Expo 2020 Dubai provides the platform for sharing knowledge and innovations.”

“Through Expo 2020 Dubai, the UAE is bridging cultures and galvanizing efforts and aspirations towards creating a better future for everyone.”

Every participating nation will have its own pavilion. Countries will not be clustered by their geography, but under Expo 2020’s three subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. More than 200 nations, multilateral organisations, businesses and educational establishments will convene to develop innovative solutions to address global challenges.

The UAE will host the event with strict Covid-19 precautionary measures and a safe environment where about 90 per cent of the population have been vaccinated against Covid-19. The event also coincides with the 50th anniversary of the country, which will, throughout the event, aim to forge new partnerships with multinational and international corporations to drive its development journey of the next 50 years.

Over 370 delegates of the Expo 2020 travelled to the UAE to attend the final International Participants Meeting (IPM) in May this year ahead of the event’s official opening in October.
