"Dubai’s economic progress throughout its 50-year history has been shaped by its ability to view challenges as new opportunities for growth. We have successfully navigated waves of global transformation, including the recent worldwide health crisis, by creating new pathways for sustainable development, innovation and enterprise. Dubai has constantly renewed the value it offers to the world as an international destination for business, lifestyle, tourism and talent, stimulating growth not only within the country but also across the globe. Expo 2020 Dubai, one of the most successful World Expos in history, communicated to a global audience our vision of bridging cultures and markets to create new connections, networks and partnerships that can advance progress. Dubai will continue to excel as a global city that brings together talent, enterprise and investment from every corner of the world to shape a brighter future for humanity.
