Tunisia will participate in the Shanghai 2010 World Expo, to be held next May 1-October 31, 2010 in China, under the theme “Better City, Better Life.”
This major global event, held every 5 years, will bring together more than 192 countries and international organizations over a 5-square-kilometre area.
This exhibition has cultural, social, tourism and environmental characters.
It provides participating countries with the opportunity to show case their artistic, cultural, architectural, tourist and culinary specificities.
To capitalize on its participation in this exhibition, Tunisia which will be present with a national stand of 1000 square meters, has chosen as theme for its participation “Welcoming City, Connected City.”
This theme aims to highlight the specificities of Tunisia as a welcoming land and emphasizes internationally its assets in the cultural, economic, technological and environmental areas.
To support Tunisia’s participation in this exhibition, five Tunisian companies: the Tunisian Chemical Group, the Gafsa Phosphates Company, Poulina Group, Loukil Group and Atlantis Voyage, as well as international carrier “Qatar Airways” signed, on Friday, sponsoring conventions with the general commission of Tunisia at 2010 Shanghai Expo.
Those companies gathered around CEPEX to materialise a public-private partnership designed to strengthen the promotional potential of Tunisia.
Secretary of State in charge of External Trade Chokri Mamoghli underlined, at the signing of these conventions, that Tunisia’s participation in this event aims at making better known the country’s achievements in the last years in the economic, political, cultural and social areas and enhance its image on the international scale.
It is also designed to establish new partnerships, conquer new promising markets and allow the private sector to invest abroad, he added.
