The Gulf Today - - OPINION -

THE re­sponse Dubai is elic­it­ing to its host­ing of the Expo2020 shows that the event will sur­pass all ex­pec­ta­tions (“190 Coun­tries Conirm THEIR par­tic­i­pa­tion In Expo 2020 dubai ,” nov .26, the gulf to­day ).

The large num­ber of coun­tries which HAVE Conirmed THEIR par­tic­i­pa­tion Conirms DUBAI’S po­si­tion As A truly global des­ti­na­tion.

With a lit­tle un­der 700 days to go un­til Expo 2020’s open­ing cer­e­mony, the mile­stone in­di­cates that Expo has al­ready sur­passed the 180-na­tion com­mit­ment set out in its suc­cess­ful 2013 bid to host a World Expo for the irst time In THE MID­DLE East, AFRICA and South Asia (MEASA) re­gion.

Dubai is known for host­ing world class events. I have been at­tend­ing the Dubai World Cup, the elite horse rac­ing event, for two years now and it is truly spec­tac­u­lar in all dis­ci­plines. If this is the stan­dard it has set than the Expo will be a global hit. Branca Sal­danha
