With a little over a year to go until Expo 2020, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, paid a visit to the site to inspect several infrastructure projects.
The Ruler of Dubai was joined by his son, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
Sheikh Mohammed was updated on the progress of the projects, as well as plans to help promote the expo, which is expected to receive over 25 million visitors from across the world between October 20, 2020 and April 10, 2021.
The Ruler of Dubai expressed his satisfaction during his visit to several construction sites and the UAE pavilion and was quoted as saying, “We are ready and remain true to our promise of presenting the best Expo edition in its 168-year-old history.”
