The exposition presents the achievements of the capital in the field of modern technologies, culture, gastronomy, transport, entrepreneurship and tourism.
A temporary exposition of Moscow is presented in the Russian pavilion within the framework of the World Universal Exhibition in Dubai. It was attended by the Prime Minister of Russia Mikhail Mishustin and the Minister of Tolerance of the UAE, Commissioner General of Expo 2020 Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan. He spoke about key projects and achievements of the capital Sergei Sobyanin.
“Moscow is one of the world’s top five cities according to various ratings. According to one of the most famous ratings, it is ranked fourth in terms of safety, human capital, attractions, economy, prosperity, popularity of the city on the Internet and, of course, culture. Moscow is a world leader in culture and technology, ranks first in the number of museums, second in the number of World Heritage sites, it houses the world’s smartest ticketing system, the largest electric bus fleet in Europe. This series can be continued further. A number of Michelin-starred restaurants, unique cultural festivals, creative industries and so on have appeared in Moscow, ”said the Moscow Mayor.
Examining the Moscow pavilion, Sergei Sobyanin demonstrated the work of the “Flight over Moscow” attraction. The guests saw the main sights of the Russian capital from a height – the Kremlin, the floating bridge, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Gorky Park, Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov, Northern River Station, VDNKh, Luzhniki stadium, as well as a panorama of the night capital.
At the World Exhibition, more than 100 countries demonstrate their achievements in various fields. Moscow claims to host Expo 2030. Its competitors are Rome, Odessa, Busan and Riyadh. Who will host Expo 2030 will be announced in June 2023.
“Moscow, inspired by the example of Dubai, which defeated the pandemic, created a rather serious exhibition complex in difficult conditions, and receives hundreds of thousands of guests here, has also submitted an application. This is natural, because our country has been participating in exhibitions for many decades, but has never hosted an exhibition at home, in Moscow. Therefore, we filed the same application and, despite strong competitors, hope to win. We will fight. Moscow deserves it, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.
The Moscow exposition at Expo 2020 will run until December 20, and cultural events will continue until the exhibition closes. The Russian capital will acquaint guests with its main projects in the field of modern technologies, culture, gastronomy, transport, entrepreneurship and tourism.
The World Universal Exhibition (Expo) is the largest international event, the participating countries of which present themselves to the world. It demonstrates the latest developments in technology and science, cultural achievements and new architectural masterpieces, and in recent years – initiatives in solving global problems. On this platform, the image of countries is formed and a dialogue takes place between them. Expo is a unique platform for public diplomacy and national branding.
