190 nations confirm participation in Expo 2020 Dubai

 

190 countries have confirmed their participation in Expo 2020 Dubai, successfully surpassing its 180-nation commitment set out in 2013 to host a World Expo for the first time in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Confirming 190 international participants is further testament to the UAE’s stature on the international stage.

In less than two years’ time, Expo 2020 Dubai will welcome the international community to the UAE under the theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, for a six-month celebration of human ingenuity and progress, allowing millions of people to experience the world in one place. For the first time in the 167-year history of World Expos, each participating country will have its own pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, giving an opportunity for countries from every corner of the planet to showcase their cultures, ideas and innovations to millions of visitors.
