Cambodia, as a member of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), has been participating in the Dubai Expo 2020, taking place from Oct. 1, 2021 to Mar. 31, 2022 in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
The six-month expo was held under the theme “Connecting Minds and Creating the Future” and three sub-themes: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
According to the Ministry of Commerce, Cambodia has selected the third sub-theme – Sustainability – for its pavilion built on an area of 384.5 square metres.
The two-storey Cambodian national pavilion was designed according to the Khmer style by mixing key historical eras including pre-Angkorian, Angkorian, Longvek or Oudong, and Chaktomuk or current Phnom Penh, it underlined.
The main purpose is to make the national pavilion attractive so as to enhance national prestige on international scene, attract more tourists and show off real potential of national economic development, it added.
The Dubai Expo 2020 is expected to welcome 25 million visitors, 70 percent of them are foreigners, said the same source.
