Today, the U.S. Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai was officially handed over to John Rakolta Jr., U.S. Ambassador to the U.A.E. and Commissioner General of the U.S. Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, at a small event in the presence of select American and Emirati business executives and officials, including Mr. Ulrich Brechbuhl, Counselor of the Department at the U.S. Department of State who represented Secretary Mike Pompeo.
This ceremony took place less than a year from the beginning of the global mega event which, following its postponement, will run from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The U.S. Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will showcase best-in-class American ingenuity and thought leadership to the world. It will feature four major exhibits, connected by a moving walkway that transports visitors through the pavilion. The four main exhibits will focus on key pillars of the overall American experience: opportunity, invention, innovation, and freedom.
John Rakolta Jr., U.S. Ambassador to the U.A.E. and Commissioner General of the U.S. Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai and Mr. Ulrich Brechbuhl, Counselor of the Department at the U.S. Department of State place the last star at the U.S. Pavilion
The presence of a U.S. Pavilion at Expo is made possible thanks to the generosity of the U.A.E. government. By law, the U.S. Department of State is not permitted to use public funds for international expositions.
The Business Council encourages its member companies and partners to engage to the widest extent possible in this important opportunity. And, it looks forward to continuing to work with the U.S. Government, U.A.E. Government, and many other partners in helping make the U.S. Pavilion a success and Expo 2020 the “biggest show on earth.”
