UAE - Swiss government has broken ground on its country pavilion, 'Belles Vues' for the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020 event.

The project is being designed by Zurich-based architects OOS in collaboration with Bellprat Partner and Lorenz Eugster.

The ground breakking ceremony was held in the presence of an official delegation led by Markus Seiler, Secretary General of Swiss Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Swiss project 'Belles Vues', makes a bold architectural statement from the outside. From the inside too, it offers a one-of-a-kind experience by inviting visitors to go on a hike – a typically Swiss activity: as they pass through the pavilion, they not only experience the beautiful Swiss landscape but learn more about Switzerland as a country proud of its traditions but at the same time highly innovative.

In addition, the pavilion will host a number of temporary exhibitions that turn the spotlight on Swiss innovation and the products and services of private-sector partners and the Swiss tourism sector to promote the country’s economic capacity and attractiveness as a tourist destination to the UAE - Switzerland’s foremost trading partner in the Middle East.
