Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - Bright im­age Cel­e­bra­tions

Kuwait of­fi­cially handed yes­ter­day its par­tic­i­pa­tion pa­per in the in­ter­na­tional fair ‘Expo 2020’ to be held in Dubai, the United Arab Emi­rates. The pa­per was handed dur­ing a meet­ing be­tween the Kuwait Con­sul Gen­eral in Dubai and UAE’s North­ern Emi­rates Theyab Al-Rashidi and Chair­man of the Expo 2020 Dubai’s Higher Com­mit­tee Sheikh Ah­mad Bin Saeed Al Mak­toum.

“Kuwait is pre­par­ing to take part in this im­por­tant in­ter­na­tional event that Dubai will be host­ing for four years, be­ing an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity to re­flect the dis­tin­guished deep-rooted re­la­tions be­tween both coun­tries”, Rashidi said fol­low­ing the meet­ing.

Kuwait’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in this Expo will con­trib­ute in re­flect­ing a bright im­age of the joint her­itage in the Gulf re­gion, as well as the Kuwaiti achieve­ments in var­i­ous do­mains for mil­lions of ex­pected vis­i­tors to this in­ter­na­tional event, he said. Kuwait will com­mu­ni­cate with Expo 2010’s Or­ga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee by next month in or­der to set the first steps for es­tab­lish­ing the Kuwaiti pav­il­ion, he added.

Rashidi ex­pressed his deep con­fi­dence in the lead­er­ship and man­age­ment of UAE’s na­tional cadres in man­ag­ing Expo 2020. Mean­while, he con­grat­u­lated UAE’s po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship and peo­ple on the oc­ca­sion of their coun­try’s Na­tional and Mar­tyr Days, wish­ing them fur­ther pros­per­ity, progress, se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity.

Expo 2020’s Chair­man stressed the com­mit­tee’s keen­ness in of­fer­ing the Kuwaiti side all the pos­si­ble fa­cil­i­ties to best serve the coun­try’s pav­il­ion. Expo 2020 is a mod­ern cul­tural event that is held ev­ery five years, and is con­sid­ered the largest of its kind world­wide. Each coun­try takes part in this fair with a pav­il­ion in which it demon­strates var­i­ous as­pects of its civ­i­liza­tion and achieve­ments in the cul­tural, sci­en­tific and eco­nomic sec­tors.

UAE Min­is­ter of Cul­ture Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak AlNahyan launched the four-day cel­e­bra­tions and vis­ited the Kuwaiti pav­il­ion, and got ac­quainted with the pub­li­ca­tions and old pho­tos dis­played.

Jassem Al-Ha­mar, di­rec­tor of su­per­vi­sion and eval­u­a­tion sec­tor at In­for­ma­tion Min­istry’s For­eign Me­dia De­part­ment, said the pav­il­ion re­flected Kuwait’s keen­ness to share the UAE and its cit­i­zens their na­tional cel­e­bra­tions.

Ha­mar said the pav­il­ion aimed at high­light­ing to vis­i­tors the deep-rooted re­la­tions be­tween the Kuwaiti and UAE peo­ple. Many coun­tries are par­tic­i­pat­ing in cel­e­bra­tions held at the City Walk to dis­play their cul­tural and artis­tic ac­tiv­i­ties. —KUNA
