Sri Lanka pavilion to spotlight cultural festivals – News


Travelers looking for a reason to plan their next vacation to Sri Lanka will find plenty of it at the Sri Lanka pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, experts said at the United Arab Emirates Forum in Sri Lanka.

Shiham Marikar, Secretary General of the National Chamber of Exporters, explained what visitors can expect from the pavilion during the event. “We will be there to present all of our products and services during the six months of the exhibition. Sri Lanka has a lot of cultural events, so there will be a special emphasis on these. Visitors can also learn and experience our national day celebrations that fall during the event. “

Sri Lanka’s participation in the event is led by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board in collaboration with public and private stakeholders. The pavilion will present the country’s 2,500-year-old heritage in a contemporary context, aligning a rich and ancient history of ingenuity and skill with a modern mindset that continues to foster a culture of innovation and creativity. The design of the pavilion is based on a central theme of water, as Sri Lanka is an island that boasts miles of beautiful coastline.

“Sri Lanka is honored and happy to be a part of the Expo 2020 global event in Dubai. Preparations for the event are progressing well and we have marked several milestones such as the recent announcement of our pavilion in Opportunity district, ”said Nalin Bandara, Deputy Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade of Sri Lanka.
