Mohammad bin Rashid Holds A Final Meeting Before Expo 2020

As UAE is recovering from last year’s outbreak of Covid-19 and its effects, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, today convened Expo’s sixth International Participants Meeting (IPM), the final gathering of nations, multilateral organizations, academic institutions, and corporations before Expo 2020 Dubai opens in October.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said, "Dubai today welcomed delegates representing 173 countries and 24 international organizations at the final International Participants Meeting before Expo 2020 Dubai opens in October. The world is recovering, and we are ready to welcome 190 countries to the World's Greatest Event.''

The IPM welcomed more than 370 delegates from around the globe, demonstrating that Dubai is open for business and ready to welcome the world, following the success of the UAE’s measures to tackle the global health pandemic.

H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, said: “Today, the world has come to Expo 2020 Dubai, travelling from every corner of the planet to join us here, to share our excitement and to see first-hand our advanced state of readiness.”

He also added saying, “We are grateful for the vision and confidence of our leadership, whose science-driven, fact-based health and safety measures have prioritised the safety and well-being of all UAE citizens, residents and visitors. Thanks to this, and your confidence in us, we are able to gather together again, to connect minds and create the future.”

“This could not have happened without the unwavering support and enthusiasm of every one of our 200-plus participants who have been by our side every step of the way. As we approach the climax of our journey to deliver an Expo that inspires, enlightens and astonishes, our message is clear: We are ready to welcome the world.”
