The twin-island paradise of Antigua and Barbuda is on display at the world expo ‘Expo Dubai 2020’ being held in Dubai following the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.’

Antigua and Barbuda’s pavilion placed in the ‘Mobility’ section of the expo; exhibits the exceptional strides the Caribbean country has made in its socio-economic growth over the years.

Gilbert Antoine Boustany, Non-Resident Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda to the United Arab Emirates shared “We are so delighted with the turnout for Expo 2020, visitors are showing immense excitement for discovering what the twin islands can offer. We are a community culture and are so eager to share that with the world.”

 

The pavilion has lined up many cultural and informative events throughout October to showcase the immense potential and opportunities both in tourism and other economic sectors.

 

Rich in history and culture, Antigua and Barbuda Pavilion is divided into spaces where visitors can experience the country’s best-kept hidden treasures, ranging from its vibrant handicrafts to its history to its wide array of cultural foods, clothes and sports.

 

The pavilion has crossed a milestone of visitors within just one month and become one of the most-visited pavilions since Expo 2020 Dubai opened its doors on October 1, 2021.

 

The colourful exterior of the Antigua and Barbuda Pavilion attracted more than thousands of visitors in the first week of October itself. The response on weekends, particularly, has been exceptional. The pavilion reached its expected 100,000 visitors within the first month.

  1. How much jobs created? How many new businesses? Any of them have any ideas of how we can get water in our villages? 100,000 visitors? Really? You guys need to get serious and stop wasting money and invest the money locally in young people and their ideas.

    • “You guys”??? What about YOU?? Staying in Biden country and criticizing is certainly not helping. You think because you dey a ‘meriKKKa you can call the shots in Antigua and Barbuda??? Have you offered the same critique to Biden and his administration???

      Oh wait! That’s right – there is NO DEMOCRACY in the “great” USA.

      • Best Ignore him, according to him (about ten years ago)nothing good has happened in A&B in the last 5 decades.
        1. Education Levy and the thousands of scholarships it has provided
        2. Our hospital stats in terms on infant mortality rate (5.8 deaths per 1,000 live births), akin to that of white Americans (4.6). Better than what’s afforded to African Americans (10.8)
        3. We now own majority shares in WIOC
        4. Our Indigenous banks now have control of the banking sector and at least one has expanded regionally
        5. A&B has seen a revolution in terms of women and power. Most of government’s departments and statutory corps not only have women in leadership positions, they actually head said bodies. They are also properly represented in overnight positions (Boards)

        We are truly progressing

  2. Congrats ambassador keep flying A&B flag high. Initive like this can help in bringing us welcomed FDI. These investments most times provide opportunities for local investors
