On November 5, 2019, a meeting was held in the MFA of Turkmenistan with the delegation headed by the Executive Director of the Dubai “EXPO – 2020” Bureau Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali.
During the talks, the parties noted the high level of cooperation between Turkmenistan and the United Arab Emirates on a wide range of issues and discussed the significance of the International Exhibition “EXPO-2020” in Dubai from the perspective of developing trade-economic and cultural-humanitarian ties between the countries.
In particular, the organizational matters related to the participation of the representatives of Turkmenistan in this major event were discussed. The parties noted that the participation of Turkmenistan in “EXPO – 2020” will not only make an input into further strengthening of Turkmen-Emirates relations, but will also create an opportunity to acquaint closer the world community with the economic achievements of Turkmenistan and tell about the rich culture of Turkmen people.
It is worthwhile to note that the resolution to hold the International Exhibition “EXPO – 2020” in Dubai was adopted during the General Assembly of the International Bureau of Expositions (Bureau International des Expositions) in 2013.
