The pavilion will also highlight Turkmenistan’s agricultural connections through elements that represent wheat, cotton, and wind.
The Turkmen pavilion will also feature a ‘digital crop’ that will move and grow in response to touch.
In a statement, Expo 2020 Dubai said the country would also exhibit Turkmen goods and develop a programme of cultural and business events at the six-month World Expo that will open its doors on 20 October, 2020.
