India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai to showcase resurgent India's march to becoming a $5T economy
The India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, which opens on October 1, will highlight a resurgent India's march toward becoming a USD 5 trillion economy in the post-COVID era. The Pavilion, a technological marvel, will depict not only India's vibrant culture and history, but also the skills and prospects that it offers local and international investors as a global economic hub.
Shri B.V.R. Subrahmanyam, Secretary, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, stated that, "India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai would exhibit a resurgent India's march toward becoming a USD 5 trillion economy." India's remarkable recovery from COVID-19 and the country's rise as a worldwide commercial hub with enormous global potential would be the overarching theme of India's participation in Expo 2020 Dubai.”
The India Pavilion will feature a variety of Indian states showcasing their culture, history, and huge business potential, as well as the country's largest corporate groups and public sector businesses. During the six months of Expo 2020, a large number of notable government ministers, officials, and celebrities are expected to visit India Pavilion, which will also host a variety of cultural activities.
“At Expo 2020 Dubai, the India Pavilion is prepared to present the face of an India that is rising on the pillars of sustainability, opportunity, and mobility - a nation poised to lead the world's future,” Shri Subrahmanyam stated.
With cutting-edge technologies, the Pavilion will showcase the country's cultural richness, ancient treasures, achievements, and leading opportunities. India Pavilion, one of the largest pavilions at Expo 2020 Dubai, will feature an innovative kinetic façade comprised of 600 individually coloured bricks. It is being developed as a mosaic of revolving panels, each of which will represent a different theme as it rotates on its axis. It embodies the concept of 'India on the move' and is a one-of-a-kind synthesis of the nation's rich traditions and modern advancements.
As India marks 75 years of independence, the India Pavilion will mirror the Amrut Mahotsav celebrations, which were begun by India's Hon'ble Prime Minister and will showcase the New India through a variety of activities and cultural extravaganzas.
The four-story structure is separated into two distinct sections. Climate and Biodiversity, Space, Urban and Rural Development, Tolerance and Inclusivity, Golden Jubilee, Knowledge and Learning, Travel and Connectivity, Global Goals, Health and Wellness, Food Agriculture and Livelihoods, and Water are the eleven fundamental topics around which the zones are founded.
Additionally, the India Pavilion will host and co-create leadership talks, international trade conferences, and seminars to discuss collaboration potential with other participating nations.
Visitors to the India Pavilion will also have the opportunity to experience star-studded nights, diverse cultural performances, Indian festival celebrations, and Indian delicacies.
The newly designed logo for India's participation was produced to give India's participation in Expo 2020 Dubai a new comprehensive global brand experience. The circular shape of the logo symbolises the unity, devotion, and community that are the bedrocks of India; it also reflects continuity and evolving lifecycles in one of the world's most vibrant democracies and fastest-growing business centres.
The logo is designed in the shape of a chakra (wheel), which represents strength, courage, and forward movement. The colours were inspired by the Indian flag, in which Saffron denotes strength and courage, White represents peace and truth, and Green represents fertility, growth, and auspiciousness.
