Expo 2020 Dubai: France Pavilion to aid post-Covid economic revival

The France Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will play a significant role in reviving the French economy, according to its Commissioner-General Erik Linquier.

"In fact, [our participation in Expo 2020 Dubai] is part of the French government's relaunch strategy to maintain a strong and visible presence globally," Linquier, who is also the Chairman of COFREX, the French exhibition company in charge of organising French participation in international and universal exhibitions, told the Emirates News Agency (WAM).

"Our participation illustrates the relevance, determination, and desire of French companies to build a sustainable society for the collective future, with the France Pavilion being their platform to showcase their savoir-faire, talent, and innovation," he added.

'France, Lightspeed Inspiration': a source of inspiration, knowledge and creativity

Under its theme of 'Lightspeed Inspiration', the pavilion embodies France's vision and highlights its many successes in the shift towards innovative eco-friendly and user-oriented mobility solutions.


Light is also the architectural theme for the France Pavilion, which visitors can explore as a source of inspiration, knowledge and creativity, offering a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Located in the Mobility District, the pavilion seeks to explore light as an enabler of progress, a vehicle for connections and a source of creativity. Designed as a link between France's proud universal heritage and a more inclusive world for today, it offers solutions to build a more sustainable and more resilient world according to the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

UN's Sustainable Development Goals: a priority shared by France and UAE

"The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of UN's 2030 Agenda are a priority shared by France and the UAE and are more than ever relevant in a post-pandemic context. France's contribution to achieving these SDGs, including combatting climate change, is an objective of responsible development and economic growth, crucial in the post-Covid rebound," said Linquier.

He highlighted that Expo 2020 Dubai represents an ideal opportunity for all French artists, entrepreneurs, academics, companies, start-ups, communities, and foundations to develop internationally, conquer new markets, and express their commitment to building a sustainable society for the collective future.
