Expo 2020 Dubai was an international platform to introduce different cultures and customs, a meeting place for civilizations. It showcased the past and present and gave us a glimpse of the future of this planet.”

“We saw many creative ideas for the betterment of humanity at the show. I’m pleased to see this world-class event is captured in this book. Journaling the event will memorialise it for generations ahead, who will be proud of the accomplishments of their ancestors and the solid foundation they inherited from them, according to the author Ali Abu al-Reesh.”

The book was published with the help of the Ministry of Culture and Youth, the United Press, as well as the UAE’s Writers Union.
