Dubai- Oct 5, 2021

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea inaugurated today Egypt Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, which extends over an area of ​​3,000 square meters and runs over the next six months.

The inauguration took place in the presence of UAE's Minister of Culture and Youth Noura bint Mohammed al Kaabi, Egyptian Ambassador to the UAE Sherif al-Badawi, and Ashraf Hamdi, head of the Egyptian Commercial Office in Dubai and deputy commissioner-general of the Egyptian participation in Expo 2020 Dubai, in addition to senior government officials from Egypt and UAE.

“Egypt Pavilion is one of the most prominent in the Expo. Its special location in the Opportunity District next to the UAE Pavilion reflects the deeply-rooted, strategic and fraternal relations binding the two countries,” Gamea said.

The Pavilion, she noted, has received a huge turnout of visitors from across the globe, since the Expo’s opening on Thursday, thanks to its unique Egyptian-style design, and most notably its showcasing of the sarcophagus of priest Psamtik, son of Pediosir, along with a wide range of ancient artifacts.

It also features an interesting presentation of Egypt’s recent achievements at various levels, especially in the areas of industry, infrastructure, smart cities and national projects, through a high-end digital journey with a virtual tour guide, she added.

“Egypt is keen on the success of this edition of the Expo, being held for the first time in an Arab country,” the minister stressed.

Coordination, she said, is underway between various Egyptian ministries and relevant authorities to start the over 100 events to be held at Egypt Pavilion, which all aim to promote the country’s trade, industry, tourism, culture, health, agriculture, sports, education, energy and sustainable cities.

Preparations are being made too for the National Day of Egypt, scheduled for October 30.

Gamea pointed out that Egypt aims, through participation in this key global forum, to achieve integration with the world in numerous fields, noting that a host of well-known Egyptian figures in the scientific, artistic, cultural and sports arenas will visit Egypt pavilion, which aims to attract about 2.5 million visitors.
