He was also briefed on the events hosted by the Egyptian pavilion, including workshops, discussions, business meetings and cultural salons, as well as specialised exhibitions in archaeology, education and real estate investment.

Next was the UK pavilion, where he was briefed on the country's latest innovations and its collaborations with entities across the world.

Dr Al Jaber then visited the Pakistani pavilion and learnt about the country's progress from ancient civilisations through to the modern era.

He concluded his visit with the Korean pavilion, where he was told about the Fourth Industrial Revolution through artificial intelligence, virtual reality and the Internet of Things. He was also briefed on new methods of communication and transportation.
