Kenya is set to access free exhibition space in the World Expo Dubai 2020 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that was postponed for one year due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.
The expo had been scheduled for October 2020 to April 2021 but has been pushed to October 2021 to March 31, 2022.
It was expected to attract over 25 million visitors.
Kenya Export Promotion and Branding Agency, as the country’s responsible national authority for the Expo Dubai 2020, said the delay has seen some countries “deemed strategically important for mutual interests” with the host country enjoy a free platform for the event.
“We had participated in two meetings before Covid-19. We have another one after postponement to align countries on measures the expo has put in place and discussions on fears of pandemic,” the agency’s chief executive Wilfred Marube said.
