Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the committee, said: "Coinciding with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee, we will write down an inspiring success story by gathering together 191 countries for the world's Greatest Show and build a global platform for reinforcing global synergy and international cooperation."
Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoun, Committee Member and Member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, said the event would help the world “realise noble goals” together.
Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of the Expo 2020 Office, said: “All members of the Expo 2020 Supreme Committee have turned aspirations into reality."
