Luxembourg became the first foreign nation to break ground for its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. Luxembourg is the first among the expected 180 countries to take part in the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. The official ground-breaking ceremony was held in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider on Sunday, 29th April. Under the theme, ‘Resourceful Luxembourg’, the design and architecture will illustrate Luxembourg’s ambition, promoting the country’s ability to reinvent itself and its commitment to sustainable growth.
Luxembourg was also the first country to sign an Official Participation Contract for Expo in October last year. The spiral-shaped Luxembourg pavilion’s eye-catching design will be a major attraction for the millions of people attending Expo 2020 and will be located in the Opportunity District of Expo 2020. The pavilion will showcase an exhibition space, a restaurant, a multi-purpose area, a shop, administrative offices and technical facilities.
