TradeMalta is organising a business delegation to Expo 2020 and the UAE between the 12th and 17th of December. The delegation, which includes representatives from enterprises in the Training and Education sector, is visiting Expo 2020 during the Knowledge and Learning Week.
During this week, the delegation will visit the Malta Pavilion at EXPO 2020 which is situated in the Opportunity District. A number of seminars will be held on the Malta Pavilion to promote the training and education sector in Malta whilst a number of visits to other international pavilions have already been set in an effort to enhance networking opportunities and explore openings for cooperation.
TradeMalta has also set up meetings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for the visiting delegation such that delegates have two days of meetings on the Expo grounds followed by two days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Twelve private colleges and six government entities will be joining this mission following an expression of interest issued by TradeMalta.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo ever to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. Through the theme of Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, Dubai aims for EXPO 2020 to showcase the best examples of collaboration, innovation and cooperation from around the world.
Organisers are targeting 25 million visitors and it is expected that over 200 participants including nations, multilateral organisations, businesses and educational institutions will be taking part. Participants chose to be in one of the three districts, Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity – with Malta being situated in the latter.
A total of ten ‘theme weeks’ will be taking place throughout the six months of Expo 2020 Dubai. The selected themes seek to address the critical challenges and opportunities faced collectively by countries and citizens worldwide, from a cultural, social, environmental and economic perspective.
