THE six-month-long Dubai Expo which was postponed last year due to covid-19 kicked off this Friday with Zimbabwe showcasing the country’s unlimited investment opportunities at the extravaganza.
According to a statement by Zimbabwe’s Commissioner General for the event Ambassador Mary Mubi, the country’s participation at the Expo has attracted the attention of the world.
The country’s trump card is the exhibition pavilion which is one of the most visible and well designed in the Opportunities District, located at the epicentre of the Expo site close to the United Arab Emirates Pavilion and within the vicinity of the much-hyped Al Wasl Plaza which will host the official opening.
Zimbabwe’s pavilion was among the first to be completed ahead of the official opening and has been highly commended for its level of organisation and smooth flow of the country’s storyline.
The pavilion is easily identified by the facades dressed by the Mighty Victoria Falls, Great Zimbabwe Monument and the capital city Harare.
These are complemented by an array of pictures of the people of Zimbabwe which brings ambience to the external facade that has been described by many as one of the most attractive in the district.
Zimbabwe’s organising team is optimistic the pavilion will attract a lot of visitors as it is strategically positioned.
While the theme of the Expo is ‘Connecting the minds, creating the future, Zimbabwe is participating under the theme: Zimbabwe- the Land of Great Opportunities as we seek to attain an Upper Middle Economy by 2030.
Zimbabwe’s main highlight at the Expo will be its national day set for March next year where His Excellency President Emmerson Mnangagwa will officiate.
192 countries are participating at the expo.
