MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The World Expo 2020 in Dubai, scheduled to start in October, is expected to play a major role in boosting the region's economic growth and attracting new global investments, Omar Shehadah, Chief International Participants Officer at Expo 2020, told Sputnik.

"The exhibition will give a great boost... to economic growth: first of all, the Arab countries will be able to attract a large number of new investments, including from the largest global players. No one doubts that Expo 2020 will have a great impact on the development of the Arab world," Shehadah said.

He noted that the UAE will be the first Middle Eastern country to host the exhibition. The Expo 2020 will focus on three topics — opportunity, mobility and sustainability, which, according to the organiser, are especially important for the world dealing with the pandemic, climate change and other unprecedented crises.
This year's edition of the exhibition will have several interesting events dedicated to Arab-Russian cooperation, Shehadah added. Among those, he named Russia: Space conference (27 October); Russia Forum: Driving the Future (3-4 December), dedicated to economic and investment cooperation between Russia and the Arab world; and annual Russia Creates forum (1-2 March).
Several Russian companies — Metalloinvest, Rostec, Rosatom and Sberbank — became the exhibition's partners.
The World Expo 2020 in Dubai will take place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
