The United Arab Emirates is on track to deliver all aspects of its complex project and was the first country to complete the ‘base-build’ of its own pavilion, with the exception of the Chinese National Pavilion.

There is however no time to celebrate such milestones and Saqr Ghobash, Chairman of the National Media Council that is coordinating the project, this week thanked all members of the team for their sustained efforts and focus on creating a truly original pavilion that will carry the UAE’s message to the people of China and many other countries.

He also thanked President of the UAE His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and all members of the UAE Cabinet for supporting the UAE’s largest ever participation in a World Exposition. “We are particularly focused on the theme of Expo 2010, ‘Better City Better Life’ because we recognize that this resonates very deeply with the UAE’s own experience under its founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed and the current President, Sheikh Khalifa.

Under their leadership the UAE Government and people have made huge strides towards creating a modern society that respects its past whilst embracing the present. It has been quick to adopt and develop new technologies that can make a real difference in terms of making all our lives better. The experience that UAE companies and organizations have in these fields is second to none and we have much to share with our friends and partners in other countries.

EXPO 2010 provides an opportunity to do this and we are pleased to invite companies and organisations with commercial or other interests in China to participate with us in the six month long EXPO 2010 in Shanghai,” stated Saqr Ghobash.

Salem Al Ameri commissioner General of UAE Pavilion said we are already in discussion with a number of key organizations and companies and that there are still many opportunities for UAE companies to take advantage of the exposition. “Whilst this is not a commercial exhibition in the usual sense of the word, it does offer many excellent opportunities for companies in the UAE and China to get to know each other better and to explore partnership or other opportunities. The UAE Pavilion offers a dedicated area for such exchanges and presentations,” he added.
