Bringing its biggest pavilion in 150 years to the UAE from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022, Thailand will use this stage to explain the concept behind ‘Digital Thailand’, its technologically-driven, economic vision.
With less than two months to go until the launch of Expo 2020 Dubai, the Southeast Asian nation is giving a peek inside its pavilion intending to use the event to forge new connections and make significant steps towards creating a more sustainable future.
Hosted under the theme of ‘Connecting minds, creating the future’, the organisers of the global gathering promise an enriching experience unlike anything the Middle East has ever seen.
For Thailand’s participation in the global expo, the Ministry
of Digital Economy and Society (DE) has assigned the Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) responsible for the nation’s representation, according to a statement.
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Digital Economy & Society (MEDS), and the Commissioner General of Section for Thailand Pavilion Ajarin Pattanapanchai said: “We are excited to present our future plans and connect with the rest of the world at Expo 2020.
"We are committed to creating a strong and sustainable environment for future generations to enjoy, and by showcasing and celebrating our achievements, we hope to demonstrate that there really is no limit to what can be accomplished.
"I’m proud to present our multi-talented ambassadors, who each give our Pavilion a personal touch and also our Thai Pavilion mascots, Rak and Mali, who will be popping up and around the city in the lead up to Expo 2020.”
Primarily organised by Index Creative Village, Thailand’s well-known creative company, UAE-based consultancy OP3 Expo and contractors Arcade Star, the Pavilion will provide an environment for discussion and collaboration.
As well as connecting Thailand to the rest of the world, the Pavilion aims to showcase authentic Thai culture. The ‘Miracle of Smiles’ pavilion has pulled out all the stops to create an uplifting and enlightening journey through the true essence of Thailand.
The Pavilion will be covered with 500 artificial Thai ‘good luck’ flowers, with each interwoven to represent the nation’s continuous growth and development. These blooms will also be celebrated every evening with the Dok Rak Light and Sound Show.
Guests can experience the best of Thai culture, business and technology through the Pavilion’s six-month programme of special events. Highlights include Thai Authentic Food & Health Week, Thai National Day, Thailand Digital and Innovation Festival and the Festival of Happiness.-TradeArabia News Service
