Dubai Expo Postponed To 2021 Due To Covid-19
The multi-billion-dollar innovation fair, the Dubai Expo 2020 has been postponed to October 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The expo was scheduled to run from October this year to April 2021 in the United Arab Emirates however due to Covid-19, it has been postponed by a year to October 2021.
This development comes as a disappointment to Zimbabwe, as the country was geared up to promote “Brand Zimbabwe” and unpack Vision 2030 at the Dubai Expo 2020.
Speaking about the postponement, Zimbabwe’s Commissioner General for the Expo ambassador Mary Mubi said;
“Expo 2020 was moved from October 2020 to 1 October 2021-31 March 2022. Companies for content programming have been contracted and have started work.”
“There are about 14 Zimbabwean companies working on Expo programme. There was a virtual meeting for Expo 2020 International Participants Meeting on the way forward and availing of a lot of opportunities for participating countries, the meeting was on 24 to 27 August.”
Despite, the global pandemic Covid-19 stalling progress, Zimbabwe seems to be safely navigating the impact of COVID-19 and putting in the work behind the scenes.
Mubi revealed that Zimbabwe is among countries that have contributed to a children’s storybook named ‘Children’s tales from around the world’.
“This is the very first time that a folkstory from Zimbabwe has been exhibited on such an important platform complete with visual illustrations and amongst folkstories from several other nations. It is indeed an achievement and a source of great pride to the people of Zimbabwe,” she said.
The digital book is readily available and free of charge in Portable Document Format, PDF, on the Explain 2020 Dubai School Program website and is also set to be accessible on several media platforms.
