DUBAI: The Pakistani pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020, themed “Pakistan’s Hidden Treasures,” was an immediate success when it opened on October 1, according to a report from Geo News on Sunday.
The Pakistani pavilion is divided into eight sections, each of which showcases a different aspect of Pakistani culture, history, religion, geography, or wildlife. The Billion-Tree Tsunami project is included in one of the pavilions, as is information on Pakistan’s efforts to fight climate change.
On the first day, Abdul Razak Dawood, Pakistan’s advisor to the prime minister on commerce and investment, stopped by the pavilion and spoke with guests.
On Twitter, Dawood wrote: “As Expo 2020 gets underway, I am thrilled to see it begin and create a new period for Pakistan’s tourism, culture, and investment.”
Around 8,000 visitors flocked to the Pakistani pavilion on the opening day of the exhibition, according to a report in Khaleej Times.
“It’s a sight for sore eyes. Pakistan looks beautiful, and now I really want to go there. It’s breathtakingly beautiful because of how pristine it is. All of this existed in Pakistan before I came here,” Geo News was informed this by one of the guests.
It was also said by another guest that the Pakistani pavilion is “amazing” adding that she is fascinated by Pakistani culture and the wonderful things it has to offer.
According to the Dubai Exhibition’s official website, this is the first time in history that each participating nation has been permitted to put up its own pavilion during the expo.
A six-month exhibition began on October 1 and will go on until the end of the year. However, during the whole month of October, the Pakistani pavilion will showcase the history, culture, and natural beauty of Balochistan.
