The Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Industrialization, Trade, and Enterprise Development Betty Maina has Monday officially received the Kenya pavilion at the EXPO 2020 Dubai.
The pavilion which is one of the most innovative and technology-driven is among the 192 country pavilions that will be participating at the EXPO 2020 Dubai, scheduled from 1st October 2021- 31st March 2022 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
“This for us is a great opportunity to show the world we are here, and we are forced to reckon with. It is a clear testimony that Kenya is ready to join the league of Nations to collaborate, exhibit, showcase, and sell to the world products that are truly and authentically Kenyan. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the UAE Government for supporting Kenya’s participation by providing a sponsorship package that catered for the design and construction of the Kenya pavilion. Kenya is ready to do business with the world in this greatest show of all times,” CS Maina.
During the EXPO, Kenya will showcase trade and investment opportunities aligned to the Big Four Development Agenda: Manufacturing, Food Security, Universal Healthcare, and Affordable Housing for all. The country’s development agenda is aligned to the EXPO theme of “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”.
The Kenya pavilion is strategically located to the UAE pavilion that is in a shape of a falcon in flight. Kenya’s pavilion is themed “Feel the Energy” a representation of the dynamic spirit, love, innovative thirst and patriotic energy elicited by the Kenyan people in building Brand Kenya. Kenya will leverage this global expo to showcase its Trade, Investment, and Tourism opportunities to the world, including visitors to the Kenya Pavilion and the UAE business community. It is hoped that this initiative will go a long way in enhancing the country’s efforts of consolidating and diversifying its market share in the UAE market.
