Representatives of Expo 2023 Doha signed an agreement of cooperation with the General Secretariat of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) at Qatar’s Ministry of Municipality on Sunday.

Expo 2023 Doha’s National Committee Chairman and Minister of Municipality Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Expo 2023 Doha Commissioner General Bader Omar Ismail Al Dafa, who is also Special Envoy of the Minister of Foreign Affairs for Climate Change and Sustainability, and Expo 2023 Doha Secretary General Mohammed Al Khoury welcomed GCC Secretary General Jasem Mohamed AlBudaiwi on the occasion.

Embodying the regional commitment to building a more sustainable future, GCC will have its own presence at Expo 2023 Doha. They will set up a dedicated pavilion to showcase GCC’s latest initiatives to fight climate change and combat desertification, increase vegetation and boost food security.

The pavilion will also offer space to small and medium enterprises from the region with the aim of fostering sustainable ecosystems across the GCC.

“The participation of GCC member states in Expo 2023 Doha demonstrates our shared commitment to support sustainable innovation and further strengthen cultural and economic ties between Gulf states,” said Al Subaie, while addressing the audience during the signing ceremony.

“By highlighting our common achievements, projects and solutions, we send a strong message to the world emphasising the huge potential of the Arab Gulf region and its well-deserved important position on the global stage,” he added.

“The hosting of the biggest horticultural Expo in Qatar comes at a crucial time when environmental action is at the top of the international agenda. It testifies to Qatar’s ability and know-how in staging prestigious international events. The GCC’s presence at the Expo will highlight the region’s joint strategy and action in tackling the most pressing ecological and agricultural challenges, and the GCC pavilion will serve all member states of the organisation,” said AlBudaiwi.

Serving as a platform to deepen international collaboration and foster new partnerships, Expo 2023 Doha will also be a major tourist attraction for visitors from the Gulf and wider Arab region.

The Expo 2023 Doha will further boost regional tourism and contribute to building a green-minded community across Gulf countries.

Themed ‘Green Desert, Better Environment,’ Expo 2023 Doha will bring together nations, organisations, and individuals from across the globe to explore new environmental and horticultural solutions.

With cutting-edge technological displays, interactive exhibits, thought-provoking forums, and vibrant cultural showcases, the Expo 2023 Doha promises an immersive experience that will engage visitors and spark transformative conversations.

Al Subaie officially received the flag of the International Horticultural Expo from 2019 Beijing during a spectacular ceremony.

Last month, two key Qatari entities — Qatar Airways and Hamad International Airport (HIA) — joined hands with Expo 2023 Doha, making it easier for people to travel to the event from all parts of the world.

The six-month Expo 2023 Doha will run from October 2, 2023, to March 28, 2024.
