ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai has received 550,000 visitors in 82 days since its opening.
According to a statement issued on Wednesday, around 100 business and thematic events and daily cultural performances are representing the different regions of Pakistan.
Over this time period, the pavilion received visits not only from the Pakistani community but many UAE residents as well as foreign nationals, said the statement.
Since its opening, the Pakistan Pavilion has kept the momentum with Expo 2020 in being an engaging, enlightening, and enjoyable experience for each and every one. With everything it has to offer, it’s no surprise that it happens to be amongst the most visited pavilions at the Expo.
Located in the heart of Opportunity District, the pavilion’s theme aims at informing, inspiring, and igniting more conversations about the country’s ‘Hidden Treasures.’
The pavilion has been attracting thousands of people from various nationalities daily and promoting the country’s tolerant, inclusive and progressive image by featuring the past, present, and future. It also highlights the beautiful landscapes, tourism, and trade & investment opportunities.
Advisor to PM on Commerce & Investment Abdul Razak Dawood said that in December, the Pakistan Pavilion launched a new tourism campaign through an engaging AI interactive screen for interested visitors to connect with tour operators in Pakistan to plan their visits to the country. He added that Pakistan has immense potential for tourism.
Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier remarked that Pakistan can attract at least $30-40 billion from tourism just in Gilgit-Baltistan. With the government’s focus on the development of tourism infrastructure in the country and promotional efforts at the Pakistan Pavilion Expo 2020 Dubai, the number of foreign tourists to Pakistan is expected to rise significantly in the coming years, said the statement.
