The pioneering horticultural event, Expo 2023 Doha, is set to welcome the participation of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), marking a significant milestone in the promotion of regional sustainability. The Expo, scheduled from 2nd October 2023 to 28th March 2024, will be the region’s first and largest event of its kind.
In a momentous meeting held at Qatar’s Ministry of Municipality on Sunday, 28th May 2023, the Expo 2023 Doha leadership, including esteemed dignitaries H.E. Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Chairman of Expo 2023 Doha’s National Committee and Minister of Municipality, H.E. Bader Omar Ismail Al Dafa, the Special Envoy of the Minister of Foreign Affairs for Climate Change and Sustainability, and Mr Mohammed Al Khoury, Expo 2023 Doha Secretary General, received the GCC Secretary General His Excellency Jasem Mohamed AlBudaiwi.
In line with the GCC’s dedication to fostering a sustainable future, the Council will be presenting a unique pavilion at Expo 2023 Doha. This space will highlight contemporary climate initiatives, efforts to combat desertification, strategies to enhance vegetation, and plans to ensure food security. The pavilion will also create opportunities for regional small and medium enterprises, endorsing sustainable ecosystems throughout the GCC.
H.E. Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie noted during the signing ceremony, “The GCC member states’ involvement in Expo 2023 Doha reflects our mutual dedication to sustainable development, cultural enhancement, and economic growth. Our shared achievements underscore the strength and vitality of the Arab Gulf region on the international stage.”
