Manama: The Kingdom of Bahrain has signed an agreement to be allocated a pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Shaikha Mai Bint Mohammad Al Khalifa, President of Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) signed the agreement with Reem Bint Ebrahim Al Hashemi, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.
This followed directives from H.M. King Hamad Bin Eisa Al Khalifa and the royal assignment to organise the Bahrain’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai.
