WAM

Dubai: The UAE’s Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai held a meeting on Wednesday chaired by Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates airline & Group and Chairman of the Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.

With only six months remaining of the country’s bid to host World Expo 2020, the Higher Committee reviewed final preparations for the 153rd International Exhibitions Bureau (BIE) General Assembly meeting in Paris in June. This will be the penultimate opportunity for each candidate city to present a compelling case to the voting members of the BIE ahead of their final decision in November this year.

Wonder if Turkey's chances will be dented by all the politically charged protests recently?

I believe, the same way happens with an Olympic venue selection, the first cut (next week) will be done mostly by technical issues, rather than political influence. It CAN be a major issue on final election (November, I think), yes.

Though i'd like Izmir to take it i think it'll eventually go either to Ekaterinburg or Dubai.

Sao Paulo would be great as well but they're hosting too many stuff lately

Connecting minds — creating the future

By HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum



Image Credit: Luis Vazquez, Dwyn Trazo/©Gulf News


When we proposed to host Expo 2020, we promised to astonish the world. Today, we pledge to breathe life into our slogan: We will bring minds together for a better future

Published: 19:56 June 10, 2013

More than 1,200 years ago, while Europe was in its Dark Ages, the Muslim world was ruled by a dynasty of Islamic leaders who embraced free thought and creativity from all corners of the globe.

Never before had history witnessed such cultural openness and symbiosis as during the reign of the Abbasid Caliphs. They built the world’s first university, named it Bayt Al Hikma (House of Wisdom) and filled its library with the finest cultural, scientific and literary creations known to mankind.

As early as the 9th Century, under the Caliph Al Mamoun, Baghdad had become the world’s capital of science and culture. The city was renowned for embracing all races and religions.

It became a magnet for intellectuals, free thinkers and innovators from East and West. Its people developed a passion for gathering together all of the fruits of mankind’s quest for happiness. This celebration of human creativity flourished for more than five centuries and set the stage for the European Renaissance.

Looking at the Middle East and its challenges today, it is tempting to think back to that golden age of Islamic culture with wistful nostalgia for a faraway time. But Al Mamoun’s vision is more than ancient history. It is also a solution for the present and the future — a model that we are actively rebuilding, right now.

My own country — the United Arab Emirates — stands where it stands today because since our inception, we have given the utmost priority to the human mind. Our land has always been a safe harbour for great thinkers. We have welcomed innovative minds and given them the freedom to create.

UAE set to face key World Expo 2020 test

By Shane McGinley Tuesday, 11 June 2013 12:29 PM


An artist's impression of the UAE's World Expo site.

Dubai on Wednesday will make a key presentation in France on Wednesday as part of its latest bid to secure the hosting of the World Expo 2020.

Dubai, along with representatives from the Turkish city of Izmir, Brazil’s Sao Paulo, Thailand’s Ayutthaya and Russia’s Yekaterinburg will make presentations at the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) or International Exhibitions Bureau in a bid to secure hosting duties.

The BIE is the international organisation responsible for selecting World Expo host cities. Officials carried out a four-day inspection in the emirate in February and those cities which do not meet their criteria could be eliminated.

Dubai is bidding under the slogan ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ and a recent study by Oxford Economics said 277,149 jobs would be created between 2013 and 2021 if Dubai secured hosting of the World Expo 2020, 40 percent of which would be within the travel and tourism sector.

Let the world be enthralled by Dubai

UAE is ready to showcase its excellence as the curtain goes up on Expo 2020 bid proposal in Paris today

Gulf News

Published: 17:04
June 11, 2013


Today, in Paris, the UAE will lay out the overwhelming reasons why Dubai and the nation should host Expo 2020. While the actual awarding of Expo 2020 will not occur until November, today marks a keystone with the UAE delegation, led by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, presenting its in-depth insight and analysis into the bid proposal.

Never before has Expo come to the Middle East — and never before has the Paris-based Bureau International des Expositions had such a comprehensive plan stating the case for a host city as that from the UAE and Dubai delegation.

Since its founding just over four decades ago, the UAE has grown into a vibrant and progressive nation, an economic powerhouse, a multicultural community, a nation that strives for excellence through visionary leadership. The UAE and Dubai bid, in Shaikh Mohammad’s own words, will “astonish the world”.

In Paris today, the UAE delegation will highlight that the Middle East is not a region of conflict and war. Instead, it will highlight that the UAE is a prosperous and peaceful nation built on the values of respect and cultural understanding, that many people from all corners or the world live and work together building a better future for all. And the UAE delegation will highlight that the nation has developed into an iconic economy where arts, technology, architecture, business, trade, health, education, culture, history, religion and geography are woven together in a fabric that is unparalleled elsewhere.

Battle line for World Expo 2020 narrows

Paris: The race to host the World Expo 2020 has narrowed down to four following the disqualification of Thai city of Ayutthaya by the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE).

"The Thai city of Ayutthaya has failed to meet the bid criteria and therefore is no longer in the race," a source told Gulf News here in Paris, where the rest of the official candidate cities are making their second round presentation. Ayutthaya will not be presenting its progress report on Wednesday.

BIE's General Assembly has approved Dubai's bid, clearing a hurdle in its bid for Expo 2020. The BIE is hosting a two-day general assembly where the candidate cities are presenting their progress report.

Among the rest, Dubai will face competition from Sau Paulo of Brazil, Izmir of Turkey and Russian city of Yekaterinburg.

Dubai clears vital stage in bid for Expo 2020

PARIS // Dubai’s bid to stage Expo 2020 has passed its latest stage, after sources said the city’s plans had met the necessary requirements. The Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the organisation that oversees the expos, was considering reports from inspectors who visited the five candidate cities.

Delegates at its general assembly in Paris had to decide whether the bids met the organisation’s criteria for staging an expo. There was no immediate official statement about the outcome of the discussions, but sources within the closed session confirmed that Dubai’s bid had met the criteria.

The same sources confirmed comments by a BIE official on social media that another candidate city, Ayutthaya in Thailand, was no longer running. The sources said the Thai bid had failed to meet the requirements.

Dubai and the other three surviving cities face another major test today when they present their Expo plans to the delegates.

By Saifur Rahman and Gaurav Ghose, Gulf News
Published: 22:01 June 12, 2013

Paris and Dubai: on Wednesday was a red letter day for the UAE, marking a milestone in the nation’s march to economic progress and prosperity on the international stage.

In Paris, the UAE ramped up its bid for World Expo 2020 with an impressive presentation. Dubai is competing against Turkey’s Izmir, Brazil’s Sao Paulo and Russia’s Yekaterinburg following the disqualification of Thailand’s Ayutthaya.

The UAE also announced a €150 million (Dh726 million) aid package to support the developing countries’ participation at the Expo 2020 on Wednesday, in addition to the €100 million Partnership Fund to support innovative ideas for creating opportunities, mobility and sustainability as part of Dubai’s bid.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, was present at the presentation at the General Assembly of the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE).

............



BIE officials were full of praise for Dubai’s presentation.
“It’s impressive and Dubai is a very strong contender,” Ferdinand Nagy, President of BIE, told Gulf News.

Vicente Gonzalez Loscertales, Secretary General of the BIE, is keen to see that the Arab world gets its fair share of exposure in the international exposition. “The UAE’s bid is excellent,” he told Gulf News.

RTA to fast-track Dh5b Dubai Metro expansion for Expo 2020

Etihad Rail to bring additional traffic to the Expo site
By Saifur Rahman, Associate Editor
Published: 16:18 June 13, 2013


Paris: Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will fast-track a Dh5 billion expansion of the Dubai Metro’s Red Line to connect to the Dubai World Central, if the emirate wins the bid to host the World Expo 2020, a top official said.

Dubai has already earmarked a large venue for the Expo 2020 at the Dubai World Central (DWC) — the 140 sq. kilometre airport city that will host among others, a 160 million passenger capacity Al Maktoum International Airport — the world’s biggest greenfield airport project.

“As soon as the bid results are out and if we win — which we will Inshallah (God willing), we start the planning and development of the project,” Mattar Mohammad Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), told the media on Wednesday.

He said, the plan to extend the Red Line to DWC has been there for sometime. The project was supposed to be linked with the growth in passenger traffic at the Al Maktoum International Airport, which will launch scheduled commercial flights in October through a temporary passenger terminal with a capacity to handle 5 million passengers. However, things will change in November, if the UAE wins. “If that happens, we will start working on it from then, in November itself.”

Well, since nobody has talked about it here so far... Ayutthaia has officialy withdrawn its candidacy, for lack of support from all the government instances:
--------------------------------------------------
Govt 'caused' World Expo bid failure
Published: 11 Jun 2013 at 20.55Online news: Politics
The former president of the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) on Tuesday accused the government of ignoring and failing to support Thailand’s bid to host the World Expo in 2020 after the country was removed from the candidate list.

Akapol Sorasuchart was speaking as the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE), which comprises 166 member countries, started its two-day general assembly in Paris on Tuesday.

At the meeting, five countries - Russia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Brazil and Thailand - were expected to report progress on preparations and readiness to host the 2020 global event.


Akapol: Government has ruined hopes for Thailand's 2020 World Expo bid.

However, Mr Akapol said Thailand had been forced to drop out of the tender bid process because of a lack of government support, leaving the other four countries in the contest.

He claimed that BIE Secretary-General Vicente Gonzalez Loscertales earlier sent an official letter to the Thai government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, asking it to officially endorse the bid and ensure the country was capable of proceeding with the proposed plans.

Mr Loscertales asked the government to respond before April 5, but they did not reply him.

Thailand’s failure to confirm its candidacy to host the World Expo 2020 violated the BIE’s regulations and, as a consequence, its request for Ayutthaya as a candidate city, was removed from the agenda, he said.

He alleged that the government tried to cover up the letter and order concerned officials not to talk about it.

“[The government] announced this [Thailand's bid for the 2020 World Expo] as part of the national agenda, the Prime Minister can’t say she doesn’t know or is not responsible for it,” Mr Akapol said.

“The PM's Office Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan confirmed he would push ahead [with the plan], the PM confirmed this and tourism minister also said the same. I don’t understand why they let it end like this.”

The BIE Enquiry Mission, which came to Ayutthaya in January to inspect the city's potential as a candidate to host the world's largest fair, indicated that the venue met all of the agency’s required criteria and even scored outstanding marks in certain areas, the former TCEB president said

The panel were impressed with the preparations and strong cooperation from all sectors in the country, he added.

“But the government just couldn’t give them confirmation if they will support [the World Expo bid],” he said.

Mr Akapol said apart from the loss of an estimated 150 million baht budget spent on the bidding preparations, the government’s alleged lack of support in the World Expo bid affected the image and credibility of Thailand in bidding for international events in the future.

Thailand’s Ayutthaya had been competing with UAE's Dubai city, Sao Paulo in Brazil, the Turkish city of Izmir and Ekaterinburg in Russia to host the six-month extravaganza.

Political observers believe politics may have come into play, because the bid was announced in 2010, during the Abhisit government.
