DUBAI // Work will begin this summer on infrastructure for the Dubai Expo.
Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and director general of the Expo, said on Monday that the aim was to complete the site a year before the opening ceremony on October 20, 2020.
After the site was complete, she said participating countries would build their own pavilions to be completed at least four months ahead of the opening.
There were 1,575 days until the event and the project was progressing on schedule.
The Expo 2020 site will be part of a new city with its own unique infrastructure, facilities and services, Ms Al Hashimy said.
She predicted it would be the “most visited mega event of 2020″, with about 25 million visitors. More info
