This will be the first Expo ever to be held in the Middle East and in the Arab world.

The two ministers expressed the hope that Dubai Expo 2020 will not only provide new and substantial opportunities to broaden the links between the two countries and people, but also promote future growth and stability in the region.

Dubai's bid for Expo 2020 was strong, reflecting the city's status as a global centre for the tourism and convention business and a global transport and logistics hub.
