COUNT DOWN TO EXPO 2020

The emirate of Dubai is getting ready to open its doors in October this year to the first World Expo to be organised in the Middle East, Africa or South Asia. The event, held under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, will bring together 192 participating countries and millions of visitors from across the globe.

 

In the first article of this month’s issue of Infrastructure Channel, we look at the final preparations, the infrastructure developments and the highlights of the event.

 

We then explore with Siemens, the official Infrastructure Digitalization Partner for Expo 2020, Dubai’s potential to become a model for smart cities around the globe.

 

Finally we have an interview with Carlo Andrea Bollino, professor of Economics at the University of Perugia and visiting researcher for King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center in Saudi Arabia, on the significance of the topic and the Expo for the rest of the region.
