Expo 2020 Dubai celebrates nation’s collaborative spirit on 49th UAE National Day

DUBAI, To mark the UAE’s 49th National Day, Expo 2020 Dubai has released a video that celebrates the spirit of the union established by the Founding Fathers in 1971 and exemplified by the UAE’s leaders, inspiring decades of remarkable achievements.

Forty-nine years ago, the Founding Fathers brought the seven emirates together under the banner of one country, setting the nation on a path to realising extraordinary goals in an unprecedented period of time.

This deep rooted spirit of partnership is at the heart of the nation, and has seen the UAE rise to global prominence as a beacon of optimism, tolerance and opportunity, uniting people from around the world, as we work towards achieving humanity’s shared goals.

Expo 2020 Dubai epitomises this spirit by bringing the world together to enable collective action and inspire solutions towards some of the world’s most challenging issues, shaping and improving the future of both people and planet.

Under its theme, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, Expo 2020 will be the first World Expo to be hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region, coinciding with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee in 2021. Expo 2020 looks forward to hosting the world and engaging everyone involved in this remarkable journey, with the aim of inspiring the next generation and sparking innovations that will underpin the next 50 years of human advancement.

Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai, said, “National Day represents an important opportunity to reflect on our nation’s rich history and celebrate our innovative spirit and values of inclusivity, cooperation and tolerance. We are blessed with the wise leadership in the UAE, which has seen the nation thrive through building on the success of our Founding Fathers.

“Now taking place in the nation’s Golden Jubilee year, Expo 2020 Dubai will mark a proud milestone in the UAE’s extraordinary achievements, showcase our ambitions for the future, and serve as a catalyst for achieving things that others thought were impossible during the next 50 more years of human progress. With partners, participants and visitors from all over the world, we will work together to enable solutions for global challenges and create a brighter future for all.”

From 1st October, 2021, until 31st March, 2022, Expo 2020 Dubai will welcome more than 200 participants – including countries, companies, international organisations and educational institutions – and millions of visitors, as it showcases ideas and innovations with the potential to shape the future of humanity.
