The Chad pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai is located in the Opportunity District and, under the theme ‘The Chad We Want’, will take visitors on a journey through the country’s diverse cultures. This includes its tradition of oral literature and theater, nature; investment opportunities in a range of sectors, including renewable energy; and its potential to become an emerging country by 2030.
The Chadian Ambassador signed the guestbook and received a special stamp in his Expo 2020 Dubai passport to record his trip to the pavilion.
The Ambassador said: “What appeals to us the most is the key sub-theme of opportunity. It is a place for us to have the chance to meet other countries and to exchange ideas but also to showcase our culture and our history. It is important that Chad participate in this dialogue. I know we will take advantage of it.
Déby said the Chadian pavilion hopes to capitalize on the opportunity that presents itself.
“The world faces many challenges and we need to approach solutions in a human way. We have to accept our differences while coming together.
