Pavilion showcasing country’s rich natural diversity, from vast deserts to fertile plains
Dubai: Sarah bint Youssef Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Advanced Technology, recently visited the Mauritanian pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai to learn about the various commercial and investment opportunities the country offers.
Al Amiri was received by Mokhtar Ould Dahi, Mauritania Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, and Mohamed Ahmed Salem Mohamed Rara, Mauritanian Ambassador to the UAE.
The UAE minister was briefed on the samples of unique Mauritania manuscripts on display, customs and heritage, products from its traditional industries and its many national reserves, which are vital to preserving the country’s environmental balance and biological diversity.
Al Amiri listened to an explanation of the symbolism of the pavilion’s architectural design and the way in which it reflects cultural diversity, ancient traditions, historical and cultural heritage and traditional music. It also represents the country’s rich natural diversity, from its vast deserts to fertile plains and the extended Atlantic coast, with many recognised as UNESCO World Heritage sites. During her tour, Al Amiri was also briefed on Mauritania’s efforts in digital transformation, emerging industries and investment opportunities.
Mauritania is focusing on three main components: Visit Mauritania, Invest in Mauritania and Made in Mauritania. Out of the three sub-themes of Expo 2020 Dubai, which are Sustainability, Opportunity and Mobility, the Mauritania pavilion focuses on ‘Mobility’ and the key means of transportation in the country, which forms a link between the Arab and Western worlds and sub-Saharan Africa. The pavilion also displays Mauritania’s most prominent crafts such as boat-making.
