I've seen "Expo 2020 Dubai" emblem on a Municipality building. Also, DNRD is putting this emblem on the visas they issue. So we should think, Expo 2020 has been already bespoken for Dubai.

Nobody knows. Last time I was in Dubai 3 month ago there were few workers. But I am going to visit Dubai again only in October I will try to take some pics.

Workers were there just for the few pics they take every month

Let's hope the project back on track soon
