🔵⚪🔴 France welcomes the decision to postpone the World Expo Dubai by one year from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
This responsible decision is the most suitable given the current international health crisis.
The France Pavilion now invite visitors to share their renewed ambition in October 2021. The one-year postponement will give France the opportunity to reinvent its Pavilion to better suit today’s global challenge of innovative eco-friendly and user-oriented mobility solutions.
The goal of a World Expo is to raise awareness and work towards solving the greatest challenges we face today. So, the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future” is now more important than ever.
All nations will come together for six months to brainstorm, pitch and implement concrete solutions to serve humankind. Given the current health crisis, this theme is no longer a suggestion, but a priority.
France will echo this need, using the France Pavilion to convey how French innovation can play a part in reaching that goal.
All the France Pavilion’s sponsors positively welcomed the decision to postpone the World Expo and confirmed their support. We would like to thank them for their trust, cooperation and efforts, and we are delighted to keep working alongside them.
