Expo gates open and excitement is high as preparations enter last few weeks
Organisers and workers are in the final stretch of testing stunning structures for the World Fair that will begin in Dubai in a month.
After a year-long postponement, officials spoke of a buzz of anticipation about Expo 2020 Dubai’s promise to inject confidence, optimism and cheer in a world still reeling from the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, the gates to the Expo site were filmed being opened to allow photo and camera crews inside.
Yousuf Caires, a senior vice president of Expo Live, described an upbeat mood.
“It’s a time of excitement for everybody, our site is visible and it’s alive,” he told The National.
