More than a hundred thousand people paid visit to Oman’s pavilion in the first nine days of Expo 2020, according to the state news agency ONA.
Over 12,400 people visited the pavilion daily, a figure considered “an excellent indicator” during the first week of the mega event, Khalid Salim Al-Zuhaimi, Director of Oman’s Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, said.
People were briefed about the country’s investment opportunities and were shown displays of modern technologies and sound management.
Al-Zuhaimi added that he expects the number to go up in November given the improvement of the climate.
Expo 2020 Dubai is the largest global event since the outbreak of the pandemic and the first of its kind in the Middle East. The event is expected to receive nearly 25 million visitors during the six months it is on.
It began with a grand celebration featuring the participation of more than 190 countries.
