Calling South Africa the “opportunity district”, our country’s pavilion is a melting pot of our culture and showcases how “innovation is informed by a keen understanding of the past and where culture is as important as commerce”.

 

Dubai, UAE (18 March 2022) – South Africa has been selected as one of the top “African Pavilions at the Expo 2020 Dubai.

Standing alongside all 54 countries of Africa, South Africa was one of only seven mentioned in a recent article in “The National“.

Expo 2020 will see millions of people worldwide meet and celebrate their collective humanity. It is an opportunity to work towards a shared and sustainable future under the promise of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. Each country participating has a pavilion – a place to enjoy an immersive cultural experience and discover what makes each country unique.

Calling South Africa the “opportunity district”, our country’s pavilion is a melting pot of our culture and showcases how “innovation is informed by a keen understanding of the past and where culture is as important as commerce”.

Think South Africa – think opportunity! Our excellence can be seen in our rich heritage, incredible wonders, our creativity and innovative thinking. Our one-of-a-kind country is a testament that excellence does breed opportunity.

“Since the opening day of Expo 2020, the South Africa Pavilion has been a hive of activity with concerts, culinary displays, and even a television studio for a variety show featuring South African celebrities such as Nomzamo Mbatha.

The pavilion is laced with colourful geometric prints linked to the Ndebele ethnic group, and its spacious and uncluttered design allows you to take in all the exhibitions exploring South Africa’s cosmopolitanism, sporting achievements and some wonderful images of pioneering former leader Nelson Mandela.”

The other African countries who made the list were Algeria, Angola, Botswana, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Senegal.
