Brazil pavilion clocked 300,000 visitors to its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai since opening.

The pavilion, which evokes the experience of the Amazon rainforest in Dubai, has a shallow water blade occupying half of its area.

A South Korean family were the 300,000th visitors. Myunghwa Lee, a mother of two children, Lee and Minky, were given a souvenir bag by the director of the pavilion, Raphael Nascimento, as a celebration.

The family had an opportunity to take pictures with Rashid and Latifa, the Expo 2020 mascots.

“I feel very excited, and I wish to go to Brazil when Covid-19 ends,” said Myunghwa Lee.

Her son Minky, opened the souvenir bag and found a coffee mug, with a blue parrot on it, which is a symbolism of Brazil.

The Latin American country’s presentation of the immersive experience of biodiversity and business potential at its pavilion spread over 4,000sqm in the Sustainability District has attracted a robust visitor count, according to the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), the nodal agency managing the country’s participation at Expo 2020.
