Moldova to flaunt augmented reality at Expo 2020
12 UAE businesses registered in East European nation in 2018 alone, bringing in investments valued at Dh4M
East European country Moldova will participate in Expo 2020 Dubai, its Ambassador to the UAE Victor Haruta said.
"Moldova remains fairly unknown to the people of the UAE and the world, so it's a big opportunity to take part in the Expo 2020 and show what Moldova is really about. It's not only that Moldova is an idyllic country to invest in, but it's also about our people, buildings, art, culture and history. This is a great chance to show that," Haruta said.
Moldova's pavilion will feature the latest augmented reality technologies to offer visitors a holistic, 360-degree immersive experience.
"Considering the importance of the Gulf region in the spheres of economic, social and technological activity as well as UAE and Gulf region being an important economic partner in Moldova's effort to build lasting partnerships in investment, trade and technology advancement, we are extremely optimistic about our participation and expect positive outcomes from our strong presence at the Expo 2020," said Haruta.
The Moldovan pavilion will offer opportunities not only to merchandise trade but will display all services such as its tourist attractions and eco-tourism facilities.
It will also provide a platform to showcase Moldova's latest research and development efforts, and will provide insight into how its cultural heritage, international trade agreements and key destinations can contribute to a boost in foreign investments and tourist numbers.
Recently, Belgium, Monaco and the US revealed details of their pavilions. From October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai will bring together 190 participating countries and millions of visitors at its vast 4.38 sqkm site. The aim of the Expo's organisers is to encourage creativity, innovation and collaboration on a global scale. The principal theme of Expo 2020, 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future', will be underpinned by three subthemes: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability.
Expo 2020 Dubai will contribute to achieving Moldova's economic vision by supporting the growth of tourism, stimulating the development of innovative businesses and enhancing the country's international reputation as a location to do business.
"The UAE has been incredibly amazing, helpful and cooperative with us as we established our embassy here in 2018. It gives me great joy to see the leadership promote tolerance the way it has, especially with the Pope's visit which happened recently. The manner in which the country is advancing across all aspects be it economically, socially, culturally, or technologically, it is an amazing achievement," he told hotelandrest.com in an interview.
There were 12 businesses from the UAE registered in Moldova in 2018 alone, bringing in investments valued at Dh4 million.
"We are happy to offer a new market and new opportunities to businesses of the UAE. We have an open-door attitude and provide immense support to international companies in Moldova," the ambassador said.
