China inks deal with UAE confirming its participation in 2020 Expo
China said it will showcase its latest and most cutting- edge technology at the China Pavilion of the Expo 2020 in Dubai, as the country confirmed its participation in the Expo.
China confirmed its participation by signing a deal with the United Arab Emirates in Dubai on May 8. The deal was signed between Zhang Wei, Commissioner- General of the China Pavilion and Vice Chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), and Najeeb Mohammad Al Ali, Executive Director of the Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau.
Zhang Wei explained that the CCPIT, on behalf of the Chinese Government, has organized the China Pavilion for the World Expo 15 times since its first participation in 1982. The UAE is the first gulf country to have established a strategic partnership with China and to have backed up China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
“The relationship between China and the UAE is fantastic. Now we have comprehensive cooperation in different fields — the economy, politics, culture, education — I think the Dubai Expo will strengthen ties between China and the UAE,” said Ni Jian.
China has confirmed that it will set up a separate pavilion covering an area of 4,636 square meters. The theme of the China Pavilion will be “Building a Human Community with Shared Destiny, Innovations& Opportunities”.
The UAE government officially invited China to participate in the 2020 Expo in April, 2016. The CCPIT, on behalf of the Chinese government, handed in their official confirmation in May, 2017.
Governments should substantially reduce their role in direct allocation of resources and channel more energy into macropridential regulation, public services, market supervision, social management, and environmental protection.
We think that the government is closely monitoring developments on both trade frictions and underlying domestic demand, and is poised to further fine-tune supportive measures if necessary.
China’s imports of US medical care and high-tech products are likely to surpass that of energy and agricultural products in terms of both value and variety.
