Dubai’s Expo 2020 Bid

Dubai, a candidate city for hosting the Expo in 2020. The support so far has been astonishing. So many nationalities have come united towards the bid and what’s awesome to see is, people in Dubai, rather UAE are behaving, as “We Know We Have It, Regardless Of The Result”. That’s the spirit with-in Dubai; look outside, some of the finest nations have come in support and released statements favoring Dubai, same nations who didn’t back Dubai during the debacle of 2008-10.

Clear anticipations of larger pool of business, the world have never seen before, Dubai will unfold some of the finest architecture & technological aspects. It’s midway to both Dubai International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport connected more than 350 destinations every-day. In Dubai Airshow 2013, the largest order in the history of civil aviation was placed by Emirates, ordering 150 wide-body Boeing-777x and 50 Airbus A-380, valuing up to $99bn. Racing up to it, Etihad Airways placed for another 117 aircrafts and Qatar Airways with 70 orders. There is no sign of slowing down for Dubai.

bid support

Great lesson for other nations, as well as teaches us a lot about life, that if we are united towards anything, we can overcome any debacle and achieve almost everything in life. My vote and support goes to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and once again a huge congratulations to Prime Minister of UAE, Ruler of Dubai, H.H. Shiekh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum – The Visionary. You’ve done it right, else this support wouldn’t have come in.
