Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed has visited the Expo 2020 Dubai site and UAE pavilion.
Sheikh Khaled, a member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Office, was shown the site by Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Co-operation and director general of Expo 2020 Dubai.
He was briefed on final preparations for the world fair, its facilities and the pavilions that focus on the event’s three sub-themes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
Sheikh Khaled, who was accompanied by Noura Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Youth, visited the UAE pavilion, which tells the story of the UAE from its ancient origins, including its people, goods and ideas, to its transformation into a unified country, and home to people from more than 200 countries and territories.
“We are proud of the exceptional preparations that have been made at Expo 2020, including the event’s international agenda," Sheikh Khaled said.
"The UAE pavilion will enhance cultural exchange and convey the UAE’s rich cultural heritage to the world.”
The pavilion also conveys stories about the UAE’s people and the legacy of their ancestors.
“We are ready to stage an exceptional edition of this global event and to welcome guests from around the world to the UAE,” Ms Al Hashimy said.
“The UAE pavilion offers incredible design and an outstanding experience to visitors through the authentic human stories it tells of the UAE and its people.”
It offers visitors an experience that explores the true meaning and positive impact of the legacy of Sheikh Zayed, the Founding Father.
Expo 2020 Dubai, the world’s largest cultural event, will host 192 countries when it opens to the public on October 1.
