    Dubai Ruler and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi officially inaugurate Al Wasl Plaza

    ‘Expo 2020 will mark the start of new 50-year phase of leadership and achievements’, says HH Sheikh Mohammed

    Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, have inaugurated Al Wasl Plaza – the heart of the Expo 2020 Dubai site.

    During their visit to the site, their Highnesses were briefed about Al Wasl Plaza – which will be connected to the three districts based on Expo 2020’s three key subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability – and the preparations to welcome the 192 participating countries and millions of visitors to Expo.

    Their Highnesses said that under the leadership of UAE President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE has consolidated its status as a leader in the global arena.

    “We will celebrate the accomplishments of the last 50 years. Thanks to the efforts of UAE citizens and residents, as well as all those who have contributed to its success and prosperity, Expo 2020 will mark the start of new 50-year phase of leadership and achievements,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said.

    Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed said: “Through Expo 2020, we will show the world how our union was the starting point for our development journey, and how our founding fathers established the robust foundations necessary for sustainable development and progress.

    “We will also have an opportunity to demonstrate how the spirit of collaboration is embedded deep in our national ethos and serves as a means for progress and development.”

    Their Highnesses toured Al Wasl Plaza following its opening and took photographs with the Expo 2020 team at the end of the tour.
