Welcome to Namibia Expo 2020 Dubai

Namibia, Africa’s land of contrast, together with over 50 leading Namibian companies, will be one of the 192 exhibitors and participants at the Expo 2020 Dubai. I welcome you to the journey of Namibia to the world at the Expo 2020 Dubai and to the journey of the world to Namibia.

Namibia is one of the top African countries leading in terms of renewable energy, tourism, innovation, technological know-how, a rich cultural etiquette, second to none and the biggest dividend that every African country wishes for, peace and stability.

The resilience of our people during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the resilience of our economy, our natural resources and our health systems where we surpassed six months as one of the five African countries without a single Covid-19 death, is just but a sign of why you should hear our story, history, and future.

The impact of COVID-19 shows the world must collaborate across borders, and the Bureau International des Expositions announcement of Expo 2020 Dubai’s new opening dates of 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022 is a perfect example of the spirit of solidarity and global optimism.

I, like all Namibians, have welcomed the postponement of the Expo 2020 Dubai as it gives us more resources and time to tell the world our story,

Commissioner General
Ambassador Simon Maruta

More time to innovate and work towards an even better and more meaningful experience that will amaze and engage all visitors to our pavilion.

I look forward to opening our pavilion in 2021 where Namibia will show how keeping trade flowing will help the world continue to recover from the Covid-19 crisis.

Our path hasn’t changed course; it is just a bit longer. The World Expo in Dubai will still be an amazing event that brings out the best of our humanity and Namibia looks forward to joining the world during the Expo in celebrating the very best of innovations, inventions, culture.”

The Namibian pavilion presents a comprehensive view of the many investment opportunities, including amongst others the mega infrastructural and capital projects with complete transparency, focusing on knowledge sharing through globally leading innovative solutions with sustainable use of resources for our two million population.

The Namibian Pavilion expo theme is “Preserving Natural Treasures for Future Generations: The Opportunity of a Lifetime”.

Namibia will be promoting five sectors during the expo, namely: Renewable Energy (as the focal sector) Tourism, Education (particularly innovation and culture), Mining, and Trade and Investment (looking at the blue economy, manufacturing, and logistics), but not limited to the above-mentioned sectors.

Finally, I call upon the local business communities, to take advantage of these available opportunities, by clicking on the menu below and participate in one of the biggest global events. To the rest of the world in Dubai, welcome to Namibia, Namibia welcomes you!
