New Zealand to participate in Dubai Expo 2020

New Zealand is the latest country to formally announce its participation in Expo 2020 Dubai.

The country shares close ties with the UAE, as well as a shared vision in many key areas, such as energy and education and has also been a vocal supporter of Dubai on its journey to hosting the next World Expo, a statement said.

New Zealand Minister for Economic Development, Simon Bridges, formally announced the country’s participation by delivering a letter of acceptance from the New Zealand Prime Minister Bill English.

The letter said New Zealand’s desire to take part in the first World Expo in the Middle East region is grounded in the country’s core values - Kaitiaki, Ingenuity and Integrity.

Kaitiaki is a New Zealand term used for the Maori concept of guardianship, reflecting the country’s goal of preserving its environment and culture for generations to come.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, said: “There are many goals in common between New Zealand and the UAE including looking forwards to, and working towards, achieving a clean and renewable future.
