Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Expo 2020 Dubai will now take place from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022
The external structure of the Principality of Monaco’s pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 is nearly complete. Monaco has chosen to present the many facets of its national identity inspired by the Rock, in the Opportunity district of the Expo site, said senior officials.
According to a statement, the pavilion will be connected to Dubai’s grid at the beginning of December, starting the process of supplying the pavilion with energy, until the opening and throughout the duration of the event. On the water supply side, the irrigation, drinking water and fire-fighting networks have also been installed and the landscaping is also being finalised, officials explained.
Once the core and shell are complete, the pavilion will be closed, tempered and kept under surveillance until it reopens at the end of May. The interior scenography and the various elements making up the stations to be visited will be delivered and installed from June, as will the wastewater treatment system and the air compressor, officials said.
Expo 2020 Dubai is expected to welcome more than 190 countries and 25m visitors and promises to bring together a world recovering from this pandemic around a common goal: Connecting minds, creating the future, the statement said.
The Monaco Pavilion will be keen to demonstrate its prowess in the field of the environment and ecology, as well as its savoir-faire in education, construction and science, the statement concluded.
