  • The project is in line with future plans for Dubai and the UAE.
  • In 2021 the UAE will celebrate its Golden Jubilee – an opportunity to connect Expo 2020 into our country celebrations.

INTERESTING FACTS:

  • World Expo is one of the world’s oldest and largest international events that takes place every five years and lasts for up to six months.
  • Participants include, nations, international organizations, companies and civil organizations. They attract millions of visitors and are characterized by a chosen theme, which has to be of universal concern.
  • World Expo has never been held in the Middle East, Africa and the South East Asia region.

Here they will experience warm Emirati hospitality at its finest, as well as the UAE’s values of inclusion, tolerance and cooperation. Youth are at the heart of our World Expo. That’s why Expo 2020 aspires to create a meaningful legacy that will benefit generations to come, both locally and globally, spanning everything from innovations and architecture to friendships and business opportunities.

Themes for the future

To build a better world, we need to use our heads and our hearts. The Expo subthemes help to guide us on this journey together.

MALDIVES

 

The Maldives is a nation of islands in the Indian Ocean, that spans across the equator. The country is comprised of 1192 islands that stretch along a length of 871 kilometers. While the country covers an area of approximately 90,000 square kilometers, only 298 square kilometers of that is dry land. The islands are grouped into a double chain of 26 atolls.


The country’s unique geography mesmerizes the visitor. Reefs that offer bands of color, tiny jewel-like islands rimmed with the whitest of soft sand surrounded by the clearest shallow waters that one can imagine. Only 200 of the islands are inhabited, and a select few on each of the atolls are resorts and some of the islands are used for industry and agriculture.


The beauty of the Maldives is not only above the water. The Maldives is home to about five percent of the planet’s reefs that comes with an explosion of color contributed by soft and hard corals that form them. The reefs are home to a thousand species of fish. Lured by the rich nutrients that flow in with the currents, large pelagic fishes such as manta rays and whale sharks also make the Maldives their home.

I'm Diana aka The Diva, owner/manager of Diva Getaways, I've been in the travel business since 2001. I specialize in group travel, cruises and exotic/luxury destinations. I've cruised most of the Caribbean. My favorite destinations is Jamaica but now that I've visited Dubai 12x and South Africa 2x I can now add them to my list of favorite destinations as well. I believe in providing the best value and service to my clients when it comes to planning their vacation.
