Delegates from 173 countries and 24 international agencies came together in Dubai on Tuesday for their final meeting ahead of Expo 2020’s highly anticipated launch in October.
Sharing photos of the meet on Twitter, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, affirmed that the world is now ready for its biggest event.
“Dubai is ready, and 190 countries are ready, as the world is healing, and getting ready for the biggest cultural event in the world,” he tweeted.
Earlier last month, Sheikh Mohammed affirmed that the UAE is fully prepared to host the mega Expo 2020 Dubai exhibition.
