Since its first participation in a Universal Exposition in 1851 (London), Luxembourg has been present each time the theme of the Expo perfectly matched its DNA. Expo 2020 Dubai will be no exception. Luxembourg’s participation in this event will allow the country to show the world how Luxembourg succeeded to re-invent itself continuously and how this benefited all its partners. The Luxembourg Pavilion is carefully designed to be a space to promote Luxembourg’s economy, tourism and culture and to offer an unforgettable experience to its visitors.
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.
In December 2016 was created the “groupement d’intérêt économique GIE” (public-private partnership) LUXEMBOURG @ EXPO 2020 DUBAI, composed of the Government of Luxembourg (Ministry of the Economy and Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure), as well as the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce, POST, and SES. The GIE is responsible for the preparation, conception, construction, execution, running, and final disposal of the Luxembourg Pavilion.
