Expo 2020 Dubai, a global trade exposition showcasing strengths, capabilities and innovation of over 190 countries, will host over 25 million visitors from across the globe in October next year.

Held once in five years and lasting over a period of six months, the World Expo aims to provide a global forum for innovation and creativity, and exposure for industry and commerce, business opportunities and alliances, in a backdrop of global co-operation.

Sri Lanka became an official participant at the World Expo 2020 Dubai, as the Government signed the Official Participation Contract with the ‘Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau’ recently. The high level delegation to the UAE for the contract signing was led by Deputy Minister of Development Strategies & International Trade, Nalin Bandara.

Sri Lanka’s participation at the event is being spearheaded by the Export Development Board (EDB) together with the public and private stakeholders ensuring the effective implementation of the project.

A meeting will be held on August 19 at the EDB for participants/prospective participants from the product sectors to discuss the further arrangements regarding the exhibition.
