What is an Expo? Expo 2020 is an opportunity for the world to showcase their innovative and latest products.The event happens every five years for a period of six months and attracts millions of visitors. For the first time in the MENA region, Dubai will have the opportunity to take this to an unprecedented level.
The last Expo was held in Shanghai, China and it was a significant success leading to greater economic prospects.
A recent research report by Oxford Economics has concluded that Dubai’s bid for the World Expo 2020 would create 277,149 jobs between 2013 – 2021, 40% of which would be within the travel and tourism sector.
Out of the 90%, 147,000 jobs would be created in the travel and tourism sector, indicating the significant potential to convert a high percentage into permanent jobs to serve the expanded economy in the post-Expo period.
