When will Dubai Expo 2020 site infra works begin?

Major construction works at the Dubai Expo 2020 site will be completed a year before the Official Ceremony, HE Reem Al Hashimy said.

Infrastructure works on the Dubai Expo 2020 site will begin this summer, a senior government official confirmed. 

Minister of State for International Cooperation and director-general of Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau, HE Reem Al Hashimy, said major construction works on the site will be completed a year ahead of the Expo's Opening Ceremony, which is to be held on 20 October, 2020. 

Al Hashimy was speaking at the Meet the CEO event, organised by the Government of Dubai Media Office earlier in the week.  

She added that while major works at the site will be completed a year prior to the Expo's inauguration, some participating countries will likely build their own installations that will be finished four months ahead of the opening.  

Preparation for the event, which is now "1,575 days" away, is progressing as scheduled, Al Hashimy said. 

The Expo 2020 site will be part of a new city with its own infrastructure, facilities, and services, Dubai Media Office reported.

The development will implement specific standards for areas such as sustainability and environmental protection, including the use of renewables to meet 50% of the Expo site's energy demands over the operational period.
