What’s new happening at the France Pavilion?
The France Pavilion at the Dubai World Expo is delighted to showcase FLYING WHALES as part of its permanent exhibition. With its unique solution for providing sustainable cargo transport to landlocked and isolated regions around the world, FLYING WHALES is fully in tune with the challenges of building the world of tomorrow – a world the France Pavilion will be bringing to light over the next six months.
The Dubai World Expo will be the biggest gathering of 2021. Expo 2020 Dubai is the first world expo to be held in the MEASA region (Middle East, Africa, and South Asia), and is centred around the theme of “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.” Expo 2020 Dubai brings together more than 200 participants representing various entities — countries, organisations, companies, and academic establishments — and is expected to receive some 25 million visitors.
World Expos of this kind have always ranked among the most eagerly anticipated international events, alongside the Olympic Games and the World Cup. They carry on a proud and longstanding history, beginning with the first ever Great Exhibition held in London in 1851.
The ambitions set by these expos have evolved over the decades, and today lean towards international cooperation and the search for solutions to the challenges humanity faces. Over six months, every country in the world will come together to discuss, propose and implement practical solutions for the benefit of all humankind.
