DUBAI – The UAE government has proposed new dates for Expo 2020 Dubai following concerns raised by participating countries amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Organizers have requested that Expo 2020 Dubai, which was supposed to open on October 20, 2020, be postponed to run from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
The Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) will have a virtual meeting with member states on April 21 to make a final decision on the proposed dates.
A final decision on a change of dates can only be made by a two-thirds majority vote of BIE’s 170 member states. ICA/Expat Media
