Sunday، 31 October 2021 01:29 PM

Expo 2020 is a World Expo currently hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, originally scheduled for 20 October 2020 – 10 April 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Arab Emirates, the new dates are 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022.

Expo 2020 is a golden opportunity to present the contributions of the Egyptian state to the global development system and to build a promising future that achieves sustainable investment and development opportunities within the framework of Egypt's Vision 2030.

Egyptian pavilion

Egypt is participating in the six-month international event with a distinguished pavilion that reflects its status at the regional and international levels.

The pavilion sheds light on the Egyptian civilization and the most characteristic features of the Egyptian personality throughout history, in addition to focusing on Egypt's future and the most important opportunities available to investors in all sectors.

Egypt is participating in Expo 2020 Dubai with a pavilion featuring elements of ancient Pharaonic civilization, with hieroglyphic writings on the walls of the pavilion and an image embodying a Tutankhamun figure. The main entrance to the pavilion is a triangularly built gate mimicking the design of the pyramids. More than 14 areas were designed within the Egyptian pavilion to portray the different periods of ancient Egyptian civilization.

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities also announced on Sept. 23 that “the Egyptian pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will include replicas of King Tutankhamun, his own golden mask and sarcophagus, his Ka-guard statue, the special occasions chair and the king's golden throne chair. At the Egyptian pavilion, the display will also include a collection of images and films promoting archaeological sites and the Grand Egyptian Museum, a set of promotional paintings, designs and drawings using ancient Egyptian representation, and hieroglyphic writing symbols.”

The Egyptian government has devised a plan to achieve the greatest benefit from Expo 2020 Dubai through showing promotional films for Egypt's tourist sites and introducing visitors to the historical value of Egyptian antiquities.

During the Expo 2020 Dubai, the pavilion will witness the establishment of 103 events, including workshops, discussion meetings, business meetings and cultural salons.

Topics will be related to cities and urban development, tourism, sustainable development, health, agriculture and improving the standard of living, in addition to women and youth.

In the same vein, nine workshops, in the fields of antiquities, education, real estate investment, and ‘Our Heritage’ exhibition will be displayed. Entertainment and cultural events will be held to attract the largest possible number of audience and visitors to the exhibition.
