In the wake of the COVID -19 crisis a number of events are either getting delayed or being postponed. Dubai Expo 2020 which has been designed to be a world class Expo attracting thousands of people globally may get delayed.
An announcement on the organizers website states “Expo 2020 Dubai is closely monitoring ongoing developments and taking all sensible precautions to manage and mitigate the risk to all those involved in the Expo. We will be diligently following the latest guidance from the Dubai Health Authority, Ministry of Health and Prevention, and World Health Organization, as we work closely with the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) and other relevant bodies as the situation around the world evolves.
Solidarity and unity are in greater demand than ever. It has been heartening to see communities around the world facing this challenge together. In the spirit of collaboration and partnership, we are consulting closely with all 192 participating countries, and will continue to provide them with tangible, meaningful support.
We will remain attentive and alert and will virtually reconvene the Expo 2020 Steering Committee in the coming weeks to reassess and adjust planned preparations, as changing circumstances require. We are confident that the collective strength and incredible resilience of the human spirit will enable us to navigate through these most difficult of times.
