Addressing the celebratory opening ceremony of Dubai Expo’s Pakistani pavilion, the federal information minister Fawad Chaudhry said Sunday such expos hold key importance when it comes to bringing countries together and their innovations to the fore.
He said the information ministry will contribute to making the Pakistani pavilion a success at the Dubai Expo 2020, which was supposed to happen last year but was delayed due to Covid. He said the team deserves praise and felicitations for making a remarkable design of the pavilion.
We are happy it’s happening in the UAE this time, he said. UAE is like our second home and there we will help realize the potential of the hidden treasure that Pakistan is, Chaudhry said.
Gone are the days when Pakistan was deemed notorious for its export of terrorism and extremism, said Chaudhry, adding that now Pakistan is known for its IT and agricultural exports.
He said this expo will avail Pakistan a great chance at branding its services and claim its stake in the global trade.
