The agreement was initialed by Mustapha Bakkoury, Commissioner General of the Moroccan Pavilion, and Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, Executive Director of Expo 2020 Dubai Office, in the presence of the Moroccan Ambassador to Abu Dhabi, Mohamed Aït Ouali.
The signing ceremony took place on the sidelines of the 3rd Meeting of International Participants at the exhibition, which is being held on November 26 and 27 in Dubai, during which 190 countries have confirmed their participation in the global exhibition.
For the first time in the history of this mega event, each nation will have a pavilion where its representatives (companies and other institutions) will showcase their innovations.
The theme chosen for the Dubai World Expo is “Connecting the Spirits, Building the Future”, a reminder of the spirit of collaboration and cooperation.
Through this theme, the World Expo will serve as a catalyst by connecting minds around the world and inspiring participants to mobilize on shared challenges.
In addition, Expo 2020 in Dubai has identified three sub-themes around which the global community will come together to form new collaborations, find solutions to fundamental issues and leave the mark of a strong social and economic transformation in the world.
The three sub-themes are “Sustainability: Continuing the quest for progress and prosperity without compromising the needs of future generations”, “Mobility: Unlocking new opportunities for people and communities, contributing successfully to the future” and ” Opportunity: create smarter and more productive connections. ”
This six-month event is expected to attract some 25 million visitors from around the world to Dubai.
According to early projections, about 70% of all visitors are expected to come from outside the United Arab Emirates, the largest proportion of international visitors in the history of the Expo.
