This was shared by Advisor to the PM on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood in a tweet on Thursday.
Last week, the Pakistan pavilion won the BURJ CEO Award for “Best Pavilion Exterior Design.” The Pakistan pavilion has been visited by over one million people since its launch in October last year, said Dawood.
“An international jury was called to select the best Pavilion at Expo 2020 and Pakistan got Silver Award for interior design out of 192 Pavilions. The response we received was overwhelming, & pavilion already crossed 1M [million] visitors mark which exceeded our expectations,” Dawood said in the post.
He thanked Pakistan’s creative team and embassy in the UAE for showcasing the country’s culture at the pavilion, saying: “We would like to thank our creative team especially Ms. Noor Jahan for ( interior) and Mr. Rashid Rana for (exterior) for their creativity in showing actual Pakistan to a broader audience. Last but not least our team in the Ministry of Commerce, TDAP, our embassy in UAE and Ambassador Afzal Mahmood without their dedication, it wouldn’t be possible to put on such a great show. Pakistan Zindabad! “
