Around 8,000 people visited the Pakistani pavilion on the first day of Expo 2020 as thousands flocked to the Expo site.
The Pakistani pavilion’s eight key spaces will captivate visitors with its rich history, culture, and cuisine, as well as its vibrant handicrafts, stunning scenery, and mouth-watering cuisine.
Abdul Razak Dawood, advisor to Pakistan’s Prime Minister for Commerce and Investment, and a Federal Minister visited the pavilion, who stayed until late evening after touring it in the afternoon. Khaleej Times reports that Pakistan Pavilion’s lead programmer and marketer Afroz Abro said: “The opening day was much more busy than we expected. “While we had a good crowd of 5,000 during the day, by evening we had 8,000 people from all over the world stopping by.” At the end of the day, we found that the crowd had swelled, so that we recorded approximately 8,000 attendees at the event.

The response has been outstanding; people have been praising the pavilion for its colorful façade, vibrant bazaar, as well as the special Pakistani restaurant called ‘Dhaba’… We are grateful the Expo 2020 Dubai brought the world to Pakistan to see what Pakistan really is… We were pleased to hear that visiting our pavilion dispelled many misconceptions and doubts they had about Pakistan, which were caused by unreliable sources of information. “They said they experienced the real Pakistan by physically visiting the Pakistan pavilion.”
