UAE well positioned to host World Expo 2020
Seoul—The UAE is well positioned to host a very special World Expo 2020 in Dubai, the first ever in the Arab world, says Reem Ebrahim Al Hashemi, Minister of State and Managing Director of the Higher Committee for Hosting the World Expo 2020 in an interview with KBS TV, the country’s state-run television network.
Appearing in a TV special dubbed “We’re here at 2012 Yeosu Expo” which went on air on Sunday afternoon (11.10am UAE time) over KBS main channel 9 nationwide, Reem said: “We are very confident of our ability to host this major event. I just hope that we have the opportunity to do so and that we can welcome you to a very special Expo in Dubai in 2020.”
The programme was taped on June 14 when Reem was in Korea to attend the UAE Day celebrations held at the Yeosu Expo UAE pavilion at the head of a 100 plus UAE delegation.—Agencies
