Luxembourg is investing ?32 million (Dh129 million) for the development of Expo 2020 pavilion, as the European nation looks to boost ties in a number of sectors.

Carlo Thelen, director-general at Chamber of Commerce in Luxembourg, said work on the Expo 2020 pavilion - located in Opportunity District - is progressing well and the European country will showcase its culture, cuisines among others.

"We will also showcase our products, tourism opportunities, new technologies and space sector. There are a lot of similarities between Luxembourg and the Emirates. We are small and open hubs. Emirates is hub for Asia, Central Asia and Africa while Luxembourg is hub for Europe," Thele said as Luxembourg's economic mission on Wednesday concluded its UAE visit on Wednesday.

Luxembourg is the first country to express interest in Dubai Expo 2020 and the firs to start construction works. Its pavilion is located in the vicinity to Al Wasl Plaza and the UAE Pavilion.

Dubai will host six-month long Expo 2020 from October 20, 2020 to April 20, 2021, with 25 million people expected to visit the mega event.

Maggy Nagel, Commissioner General of Luxembourg at Expo 2020 Dubai, said Expo 2020 fits perfectly with the promotion efforts of Luxembourg and will make it possible to assert many skills of 'Made in Luxembourg'. "

On Wednesday, three partnership agreements were signed between Luxembourg and UAE companies - Jumeirah Group, RAK Porcelain Europe and Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, in order to allow the Luxembourg pavilion to function properly during the exhibition.
