Nicaragua will participate in the prestigious Expo Dubai 2020, suspended last year due to the pandemic. The event will open its doors from October 1, 2021, to March 30, 2022, and 191 countries will be present. The participation in this international exhibition will be a first-rate showcase for the Nicaraguan economy, which will allow it to explore business opportunities in the Middle East market. 

The country’s participation is in charge of MIFIC, the Ministry of Development Industry and Trade; PRONicaragua, the country’s official investment promotion agency; INTUR, the Nicaraguan Tourism Board; and INC, the Nicaraguan Cultural Institute. The functions of general commissioner of the pavilion will be exercised by the Nicaraguan Ambassador to Kuwait, Mohammed Lashtar. 

The Expo is divided into three districts: opportunity, mobility and sustainability; Nicaragua being in the first one. It will be the first time that a universal exhibition is divided by districts and not by regions. Likewise, unlike other events, this year the country will have a pavilion of its own, which has been carefully designed to showcase its culture, products, and business, to position the country as an open landscape for opportunities.

During the six months that the exhibition will last, one of the most outstanding events that will be experienced in the pavilion is the celebration of the Nicaragua Day at the Expo, which will take place on January 18, on the birthday of Rubén Darío. On this day, organizers and authorities will officially visit the Nicaraguan pavilion, with an agenda of bilateral meetings, a presentation of the country, and cultural representations that will include music, dances, and a culinary experience. 

Expo Dubai 2020 will be an event of great international projection and in which the United Arab Emirates will take the opportunity to celebrate 50 years of its creation. Its exhibition center, which will host the pavilions of the 191 invited countries and expects to attract 25 million visitors, will have an area equivalent to that of 600 football fields and, for the first time in history, a universal exhibition is being held in the region of the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia.
