Emirates News Agency (Wam) reported that employees of the Chinese Business Council (CBC) in the UAE expect the pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai to receive around two million visitors.
China’s Chamber of Commerce chairman Zhang Guihai told the Dubai Business Channel that the global event will help “attract more overseas businesses to the UAE and present opportunities for Chinese businesses in the emirates.”
China’s Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) hopes to reach two million visitors in the China pavilion during the six-month event, as the council explores new forms of participation for Expo 2020 Dubai.
His clarification was that this estimate was made prior to the pandemic. The number may vary, particularly if pandemic restrictions or conditions apply in the future.
The UAE has achieved an impressive vaccination record, and travel restrictions have been eased, which would make the UAE an appealing destination for Chinese tourists.
Guihai describes ‘China Pavilion on the Cloud’ as the China pavilion’s new form of participation, which will allow millions of Chinese and foreign audiences to virtually experience the pavilion.
A live online broadcast will also be available on the official website of the Chinese pavilion, he said, to encourage more online and offline traffic to the pavilion.
