When the world’s biggest party - Dubai Expo 2020 finally kicks off in October in Dubai, India’s 4,800 sqm national pavilion will showcase new technology, and its “5 Ts”. Indian Ambassador to the UAE Pavan Kapoor said: “It will look different from the outside when completed.”
“A lot of things will be digital projection…The outer surface will be a special one, which will make it convenient for projections,” he said without elaborating on the technology.
An artist’s rendering of the final design of the pavilion, which also includes a two-storey plaza next to the main building, shows Mahatma Gandhi’s face displayed on the façade of the four-storey main building. Earlier, a statue of the Father of the Nation had been planned at the entrance.
The construction is progressing fast, with the main structure scheduled to be completed by March 31, 2021. An adjacent plaza is also nearing completion.
The Indian government’s representatives from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and its industry partner for the Expo, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), along with the Ambassador and the Consul General of India in Dubai Dr Aman Puri, recently visited the site.
