Commissioner General of the Japanese Section,
Dubai Expo 2020

From October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022—a period of 182 days—Expo 2020 Dubai will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Marking the occasion of 50 years in 2021 since the foundation of the UAE, it is the first official large-scale world expo to be held in the Middle East and Africa region.

The theme of the Dubai Expo is Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.

What can the Japan Pavilion present to the world based on this theme?

Through creating encounters between technologies, people and ideas from a global and future-oriented perspective, and then fusing these together, Japan will contribute actions to improve our world.

As a country that has taken on many challenges in the process of its development, Japan has already devised the means for resolving various issues. Building on this knowhow, it is now putting new questions to the world, encouraging empathy and taking the initiative in seeking out answers.

At the Japan Pavilion, visitors will experience examples of such encounters, empathy and actions. Our hope is to impart some insight to each person toward solving issues and living in harmony in tomorrow’s world.

We are eagerly awaiting your visit.
