Antigua and Barbuda to showcase their country story at Expo2020 Dubai

Antigua and Barbuda will be marking a milestone in its history when it participates for the first time in a World Expo by taking part in Expo2020 Dubai.

Positioning itself as the emerging economic powerhouse of the Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda hopes its first ever pavilion at a World Expo will showcase its booming investment and tourism industries as well as its rich history and culture to the world, as more than 20 million people are expected to visit Dubai during Expo2020 Dubai.

The country’s participation at Expo 2020 Dubai coincides with its 40th year of independence and will also include a trade office to be located a floor just above its pavilion, to facilitate trade missions and leverage business opportunities during the Expo.

“The essence of Antigua and Barbuda lies in its culture and people. Steeped in history and wrapped in a culture of warmth and vibrancy, we are excited to welcome guests from across the globe to experience our traditions, taste our delicacies and witness how a rapidly progressing nation is becoming a key business and tourism destination,” said His Excellency Gilbert Antione Boustany, non-resident Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda in the UAE.

The 2500 sq ft Antigua and Barbuda pavilion will showcase the nation’s vibrant, high-end tourism sector, which supports 80% of its GDP. “While that will be a highlight in our pavilion, our focus right now is to showcase the country’s logistical geographical location, and its potential as a trading hub between the Middle East and the Caribbean along with Central and Southern America, connecting the Eastern region with 700 million people,” His Excellency added.

Antigua and Barbuda welcomes over a million visitors annually to its shores and is one of the Caribbean's premier destinations for leisure, cruises, and business travelers. It is home to a 300-acre private island paradise, Jumby Bay Resort which is part of the renowned Oetke Collection of premium destinations and is rated the #1 luxury resort in all of the Caribbean, and 5th best resort in the world. The country has now become a gateway to international and regional travel across the globe, with its award-winning V.C. Bird International Airport.
