Despite the numerous challenges and unexpected curves brought about by the Covid-19 virus, Dubai decided to advance the Expo 2020.
The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent blow to the global economy have delayed many international events, including the Olympics and the 2020 European Cup.
The 2020 World Expo originally scheduled to be held in Dubai was postponed, and the health crisis brought the global tourism industry to a standstill.
Due to the rapid escalation of the situation, in April 2020, the organizers of Expo 2020 approved a proposal to postpone the event for one year. Some participating countries have also asked for a delay so that they can buy time to deal with the virus.
Reem Al Hashemi, Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “Many countries are severely affected by the Covid-19 virus and therefore expressed the need to postpone the opening of Expo 2020 Dubai by one year so that they can overcome this challenge.” Generally. “The UAE and the 2020 Dubai World Expo have listened to opinions, and in a spirit of solidarity, we support the proposal to explore a one-year extension.”
The delay is a huge blow to Dubai, because the emirate-by the end of the show, the emirate will spend more than $ 8 billion on Expo-related infrastructure projects-rely on this event to promote its economic development.
However, Standard & Poor’s Global expects the UAE’s economy to recover this year, thanks in part to the 2020 World Expo, which will be held from October 2021 to March 2022.
Organizers are prepared for all situations and are expected to open on October 1, 2021. However, as the pandemic spreads globally again, the feasibility of hosting international public events is in doubt.
However, Dubai is still optimistic about hosting the 2020 World Expo this year and is expected to attract millions of foreign tourists from all over the world.
Through the successful vaccination campaign, the UAE has basically controlled the infection, so it decided to continue to hold this large-scale event.

World Expo 2020 is the largest event in the history of Asia, and its overall theme is “Connecting Thinking and creating the future“.
There will be 190 countries participating in this event, and each country has the opportunity to show the world its unique history, culture, talents, human ingenuity, and skills.
The entire event venue will be divided into three main sub-areas: opportunity, mobility, and sustainability.
Last month, Daoud announced the completion of the construction of the Pakistan Pavilion at the 2020 Dubai World Expo and added that it has been handed over to the Pakistani government. The theme of the Pakistan Pavilion is “Pakistan: Hidden Treasures”. “The Expo 2020 will be a great opportunity to connect with the world and will allow Pakistan’s business community to connect with international markets and investors,” he said.
The main goal of the pavilion is to promote tourism, trade, and investment in Pakistan by revealing the undiscovered potential and potential of Pakistan. Pakistan’s hidden treasures will be explored through its rich history, amazing land, and culture. An immersive multi-sensory experience of religious diversity, rich handicraft traditions, and economic possibilities.
Furthermore, the Pakistan pavilion will lead visitors on an eternal journey, from one of the oldest recorded civilizations in the world to the challenges of the new millennium. However, each participant will benefit from a series of incidental trade, investment, and cultural activities in line with the theme of Expo Week to manage Pakistan’s business image as a modern and progressive country.
It is expected that Pakistan gets enormous benefits from the 2020 World Expo, also the entire Pakistani economy will reap the results of the World Expo. Whether it is in the hotel industry or trade and commerce, the improvement of the country’s image as a safe, reliable, progressive, and diligent country will have a positive impact on all sectors of society and the economy.
Talking about the Covid-19 will significantly limit the benefits of the 2020 World Expo for Pakistan, there is no doubt that the entire world is facing difficult times. However, experience also shows that Pakistan’s resilient economy has withstood the initial shock and has become stronger compared to other economies. Countries around the world are moving quickly to vaccinate their citizens to normalize business.
The UAE’s goal is to achieve 100% immunization by June 2021, and many other countries follow the same schedule.
In addition, with the adoption of the latest technology, the dynamics of trade and commerce are changing rapidly.
Additionally, the whole world is embracing the new normal, and Pakistan must also embrace modern business technology to ensure its presence on international forums and platforms, to show the world that the country is reliable and reliable even in difficult times. China’s economic policy is also for the same endeavor.
Expo 2020 implemented far-reaching preventive measures plan to ensure the safety of all visitors, participants, and employees, working closely with the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Dubai Department of Health and providing the latest information and advice from the world on hygiene online organization.
These include disinfection stations throughout the venue, mandatory use of masks, and the implementation of social distancing regulations.
Building on the successful UAE vaccination plan, Expo 2020 will also provide its employees and all official participants and their staff with free Covid-19 vaccine
When talking about the expected turnout rate for Expo 2020, the consultant explained that the UAE is expected to welcome 25 million tourists from all over the world during the six-month period, and the authorities are currently working to develop medical codes for travelers to provide a safe environment for all participants and visitors.
He said: “It is hoped that through the rapid global vaccination campaign, countries will quickly get rid of the challenges brought by the pandemic and move towards a better future for mankind.”
Finally, talking about the prospect of Dubai lifting the visa ban on Pakistanis, he said that this is a difficult time not only for Pakistan but also for other countries in the world. “Currently, approximately 1.5 million Pakistanis in the UAE are contributing to a better future for the host country and Pakistan in some way,” he said. Pakistan and the UAE have deep political and fraternal relations.
He explained that visa restrictions are not of a political nature, and the UAE is slowly and cautiously providing a visa system for all travelers from all over the world because it has taken action to ensure a safer environment.
The Mission of the United Arab Emirates in Pakistan is making special arrangements to deal with the visa applications of the influx of Pakistanis during the six-month exhibition. “Therefore, in a short period of time, we will definitely see an improvement in the visa system of the United Arab Emirates to Pakistan,” he said.
As a founder of Top Travel Company of Pakistan, we firmly believe that the 2020 World Expo will greatly help revitalize Pakistan’s tourism industry currently affected by the virus.
This event will enable Pakistan to showcase its cultural and tourism aspects at the international level, which will attract foreign businessmen and officials to visit and explore the country.
With extreme advancement in each sector after the COVID hits badly, the thing accelerating more. People are enthusiast to back with a boom and show the world what they have missed in these difficult times.
Like travel agencies, tour guides and the hotel industry are facing a serious liquidity crisis. Not only that, but airlines also lay off staff to avoid bankruptcy. It has been more than a year since the first blockade. However, the problem of the tourism industry is still deadlocked.
However, Expo 2020 is expected to alleviate some of these difficulties. This will provide foreign investors with an opportunity to explore our country and set up projects in Pakistan. Moreover, it is also expected that the successful marketing of Pakistani officials from this event can have a significant impact on the number of foreign tourists in Pakistan in the next few years.
This is different from the usual exhibitions, where countries and companies only have three to five days to showcase their products and ideas.
Talking about the potential disadvantages of this incident, he said that due to the global financial crisis, foreign investors may be reluctant to invest because financial uncertainty still exists.
Countries are doing their best to support their economies and launch various options, such as injecting liquidity or bailing out companies, but at the same time, this reduces purchasing power parity and may ultimately affect the amount of investment into Pakistan through the World Expo in 2020.
