Russia was the first to apply for the right to host the World Universal Exhibition “Expo-2030” in Moscow. The official letter has been sent to the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). Now, according to the BIE rules, other applicants need to send applications no later than October 29, 2021.
The Russian capital chose the theme of the event “Progress of Humanity. A common vision of a harmonious world ”. If the application is approved, the Universal Exhibition will be held in Moscow from April 27 to October 27, 2030. Voting within the framework of the BIE General Assembly, following which the winning city will be announced, will take place in 2023.
“The Russian capital has sufficient capabilities to ensure the holding of the world exhibition at the highest level. Traditionally, this event gathers more than 100 participating countries and millions of visitors from all over the world, so the investment in its organization pays off in full. And besides, additional jobs will be created even at the stage of preparation for the Expo, ”she said.
Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.
According to her, the capital can offer participants and guests of the Expo-2030 exhibition a unique cultural, educational and event program. Another significant advantage of the city is its leading position in the field of modern technologies.
“In recent years, Moscow has created a developed and competitive infrastructure for the development and implementation of new technologies. More than 130 thousand technology companies operate in the city. International experts have repeatedly noted the capital’s digital ecosystem. Our city is ideal for demonstrating scientific and technological achievements in various fields, ”said Natalya Sergunina.
The World Universal Exhibition is the largest international exhibition that brings together achievements in the field of science, technology, architecture and art. It has been held every five years since 1851 and has been open to the public for six months. The legacy of such exhibitions has become, for example, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the National Palace in Barcelona.
