Hassan Afzal Khan, Consul-General of Pakistan to Dubai and the Northern Emirates, says the Pakistani community is committed to making the mega exhibition a big success through their overwhelming participation in the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Khan said while addressing Pakistan Business Council members at an event to mark the country's 75th Independence Day in Dubai late on Wednesday.
"Pakistan pavilion is almost ready, and we are just finalising a plan to ensure active participation of the community. Businessmen should be ready to unfold their plans and build up the soft image of the country,"
Khan, a career diplomat, replaced previous consul-general Ahmed Amjad Ali and assumed his responsibilities in the first week of August. He has also served at Pakistan missions in Berlin, Pretoria and Hanoi.
Adeem Khan, Trade Investment Councillor, briefed business council members about the latest developments at the Pakistani pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
"Pakistan has one of the largest pavilions at the Expo, with 35,000 square feet of space. It will have eight designated sections to digitally showcase the country's civilisation, natural wonders, music, crafts and opportunities in key sectors," Adeem said.
"We will host more than 200 events during the six-month-long Expo. The focus will remain on cultural and tourism events, seminars and B2B meetings," he said.
