Dubai is now the official #Expo2020 host city after a handover ceremony took place in Paris on Wednesday.
Wednesday was “a historic day for Dubai,” said Reem Al Hashimi, UAE Minister of State and Managing Director of the Higher Committee for the World Expo 2020. “We are hoping to receive a unanimous vote.”
Dubai won the Expo 2020 bid in 2013. Wednesday’s meeting confirmed its selection.
