Since its first participation in a Universal Exposition in 1889 (Paris), Luxembourg has been present each time the theme of the Expo perfectly matched its DNA. Expo 2020 Dubai will be no exception. Declared of national interest, Luxembourg’s participation in this event will gain momentum as a unique showcase over the course of 173 days to show the world how Luxembourg succeeded to re-invent itself continuously and how this benefited all its partners. The Luxembourg Pavilion will be carefully designed to be a space to promote Luxembourg’s economy, tourism and culture as visitors will enjoy an unforgettable experience.
In April 2016 and in view of Luxembourg’s participation in the Expo 2020 Dubai, the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg decided to appoint, Mrs Maggy Nagel, the former Minister of Culture and Housing, as the Commissioner General of Luxembourg to the Expo 2020 Dubai. Funding is provided by the Government of Luxembourg via the Ministry of the Economy and the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure. A public private partnership LUXEMBOURG @ EXPO 2020 DUBAI was created on 19 December 2016 and is responsible for the preparation, conception, construction, execution, running and final disposal of the Luxembourg Pavilion.
