A month after the India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai was thrown open to the public, the structure with metamorphosing exterior walls crossed the 2,00,000 footfall mark to become one of the most visited pavilions at the high-profile expo that saw 192 nations participating.
The Union commerce ministry on Thursday said that the pavilion has successfully completed its first month at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, and has hosted over 2 lakh visitors on November 3 from various sectors to discuss India’s growth roadmap.
A senior official said, “It also secured investment opportunities for the country and celebrated several cultural events to attract visitors.”
At Expo 2020 Dubai, the world’s biggest trade and commerce bash, which started on October 1, 2021, and will end on March 31, 2022, there was a huge buzz about India. India deployed the maximum number of participants and created a 8,750-square metre pavilion that was inaugurated by Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal on October 1. The message was that India was out to grab the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore solutions to challenges that impede its growth.
At the first such event in the Middle East, 25 million people are expected to visit over the next six months.

Commenting on the success of the India Pavilion, Dr. Aman Puri, Consul General of India in Dubai and Deputy Commissioner General for India at Expo 2020 Dubai, said, “October was a huge success for the India Pavilion. We saw a strong visitor turnout and expect this momentum to continue in the coming months.”
“While the India Pavilion will showcase more business opportunities for collaboration and investment, the popularity of India’s festivals, food, and cultural performances, have been crucial aspects in attracting visitors from across the globe,” he added.
The commerce ministry, which is steering participation at Expo 2020, claimed that India has been primarily focused on presenting unlimited opportunities for the global community to participate in India’s growth story and benefit from it. This confidence stems from the fact that a large percentage of India’s population has been vaccinated and the target of inoculating all citizens soon seems doable.
In conjunction with the objectives of Expo 2020 Dubai, 11 key themes are being represented at the India Pavilion. These are climate and biodiversity, space, urban and rural development, tolerance and inclusivity, the golden jubilee, knowledge and learning, travel and connectivity, global goals, health and wellness, food agriculture and livelihoods and water.
Top sources in the government said that there is a likelihood that in the coming months Prime Minister Narendra Modi may visit Dubai and inspect the pavilion.
