The works for the construction of the Italy Pavilion continue in strict compliance with the relevant safety measures, which are constantly updated to optimally safeguard the health of all workers involved in the building of the site for Expo 2020 Dubai.
As announced after the last teleconference meeting between the steering committee, the advisory body of the Universal Exhibition of which the Italian Commissioner's Office is a member, with BIE (Bureau International des Expositions), and as underlined in a subsequent press release the organisers of the Expo have adopted a series of rigid precautionary measures to check the spread of COVID-19 and applied the latest guidelines issued by the Dubai Health Authority, the Ministry of Health and Prevention, the World Health Organisation and other competent bodies.
The health and well-being of all those involved in the Exhibition and of all people who live and visit the United Arab Emirates are the absolute priorities and will not be threatened: this was the message emerging from the official communications by the organisers.
Meanwhile, the Emirati Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Interior have executed this weekend a national sanitisation programme with a complete sterilization of public services and transport facilities which also involved the Expo Dubai site.
Meanwhile, the foundations of the Italy Pavilion have been laid. The next phase will involve the installation of the three hulls on the roof of the structure, which will turn into the largest Italian tricolour ever created. Construction materials coming from Italy are delivered regularly and this, together with the progress of the works for the pavilion, is a sign of the vitality of Italy’s productive system in the face of the current health emergency, and proves that Expo 2020 constitutes an even greater opportunity for relaunching Italy and an extremely valuable occasion for our country to stamp its mark on the international stage.
While the works on the Expo 2020 Dubai site continue, so do those in the offices of the Italian Commissioner's Office in Rome and in the Emirates, in compliance with the safety measures indicated by the national institutions and by the World Health Organisation: smart working is the solution chosen to tackle the emergency situation.
