World Expo 2020 To Bring Record-Breaking Dubai Achievements
(Dubai) – As the Dubai city perches at the cusp of bigger accolades to line the way, a successful World Expo 2020 bid would serve as another jewel in the crown for Dubai’s victorious turn in the spotlight, which has already borne witness to a half century in landmark accomplishments.
If Dubai is referred to as skyscraper city, then this concrete jungle has earned its title with panache. Architectural marvels are peppered around the emirate, ruling majestically from dizzying heights, while the infrastructure grows at a rapid pace.
Expo in the UAE would truly be an Expo for the world, as people of nearly 200 nationalities already live and work in the UAE. We are within a four-hour flight range of nearly one-third of the world’s population, and for the first time in history, a majority of visitors to the Expo would come from outside the host country.
The UAE’s strategic position as a bridge between East and West, and North and South, provides a powerful platform for the world to come together and unlock the potential of the future. What’s more, Dubai 2020 would be the first Expo to be held in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region, giving these vibrant and dynamic economies access to great new opportunities on the world stage.
