The UAE demonstrates the power of connections. The nation is home to two major hub airports, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and also two leading airlines. It also has nine major sea ports, including Jebel Ali, the ninth largest container port in the world.
The UAE is also a nation built on the power of connections, between seven emirates, and people of 200 different nationalities who meet, work together and form friendships every day. Because of this, the nation is convinced of the ability of Expo 2020 to spark collaboration and partnership amongst the international community to seek collective solutions for a better future.
The UAE has an established track record of successful participation in World Expos. The national pavilion from the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai is now a permanent fixture on the skyline of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. We are excited to be hosting the 2020 World Expo, which will welcome 25 million visitors from around the world.
