To mark the UAE’s 49th National Day, Expo 2020 Dubai has released a video that celebrates the spirit of the union established by the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1971 and exemplified by the UAE’s leaders, inspiring decades of remarkable achievements.
Forty-nine years ago, the Founding Fathers brought the seven emirates together under the banner of one country, setting the nation on a path to realising extraordinary goals in an unprecedented period of time. This deep-rooted spirit of partnership is at the heart of our nation, and has seen the UAE rise to global prominence as a beacon of optimism, tolerance and opportunity, uniting people from around the world, as we work towards achieving humanity’s shared goals.
Expo 2020 Dubai epitomises this spirit by bringing the world together to enable collective action and inspire solutions towards some of the world’s most challenging issues, shaping and improving the future of both people and planet.
Under its theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, Expo 2020 will be the first World Expo to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region, coinciding with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee in 2021.
Expo 2020 looks forward to hosting the world and engaging everyone involved in this remarkable journey, with the aim of inspiring the next generation and sparking innovations that will underpin the next 50 years of human advancement.
