Expo 2020 Dubai: Record 192 countries taking part

ROME, SEP 21 – Expo 2020 Dubai is set to open its
doors on October 1 with a record 192 countries taking part.
The last Universal Exposition in Milan in 2015, for example, had
141 participating countries and organizations.
And for the first time in World Expo history, every
participating country will have its own pavilion. “We have invited all countries in the world without exception,
in line with our commitment to making Expo 2020 Dubai a truly
international event and platform for all of humanity,” said a
spokesperson for the event. “For more than 170 years, World Expos have been apolitical
events focused on furthering humanity for the common good
through innovation, cultural exchange, creativity and
collaboration. “We are proud to continue that tradition”.
Expo Dubai is also the first Universal Exposition in the Middle
Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will be the star performer at the
opening ceremony on September 30.
The six-month event in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) could
attract as many 25 million visitors although it is difficult to
make forecasts given the disruption the pandemic is causing
international travel. (ANSA).
