African Union at Expo 2020 Dubai

The African Union (AU) at Expo 2020 Dubai ( will host eight events in eight weeks as the world attention turns to the global showpiece for one last hoorah.

“From the onset, we set our sights on showcasing the incredible and continued opportunities that lie across the African continent and the ease in travel restrictions on member states is most welcomed, as it allows the African Union to continue with its strategic activities at Expo 2020 Dubai,” remarked Dr. Levi Uche Madueke, the AU Expo Commissioner General, as he looks ahead to a busy concluding two months in Dubai.

As the celebrations of the African Union’s 20th anniversary continue, at the conclusion of the 35th AU Summit, where Heads of state and members of the executive have laid out - in great detail - the strategic framework for the year ahead, the activites at Expo 2020 Dubai by the African Union serve as the perfect launching pad for Africa’s 2022.

“We are hitting the ground running, inspired by the 35th gathering of Heads of State and the commitments we heard, pledging support for more unified developmental activities of our continent and our Expo 2020 Dubai activities further advance the cause of fulfilling the aspirations of Agenda 2063 - alongside member states present here at Expo” concluded Dr. Madueke.
