Dubai: Abdul Rahman bin Mohammad bin Nasser Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention, visited the Brazil Pavilion to have a closer look at the biodiversity in Brazil, its rivers and mangroves, as well as national programmes launched to preserve the environment and address climate change.
Located in the Sustainability District, the Brazil Pavilion raises the slogan ‘Together for sustainable development’.
During his visit, the minister reviewed the sustainable development plans developed by the Brazilian government for the Amazon region, in cooperation with the private sector and other stakeholders, to promote development and upgrade the national economy.
Ideal opportunity to learn about civilisations
Al Owais expressed his admiration for the Brazil Pavilion, which reflects its culture and environment, adding that Expo 2020 Dubai represents a global platform that provides an ideal opportunity to learn about civilisations, experiences and expertise of various countries, improve communication among the people of the world and strengthen relations and ties in all fields and sectors.
“Expo 2020 Dubai mirrors the civilised and humanitarian role that the UAE and its wise leadership are committed to, with the aim of making an effective and influential contribution towards building a brighter future in which countries and people will enjoy greater prosperity, development and welfare,” Al Owais said.
The Brazil Pavilion focuses on the concept of sustainability through its design and the recyclable material it uses, simulating the design of the Amazon basin, which is the largest river in the world, using audio-visual effects and a distinctive engineering design.
