Dubai Expo 2020: PM Modi invites investors to ‘land of opportunities’ India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that the Dubai Expo was testimony to the resilience of mankind against the Covid-19 pandemic. PM Modi, who was addressing the crowd at the India pavilion on the opening day of the Expo 2020 Dubai, also called upon the world to come to India, the “land of opportunities”, to invest.

“The main theme of Expo 2020 [Dubai] is connecting minds [and] creating the future. The spirit of this theme is also seen in India’s efforts as we move ahead to create a New India. I would also like to congratulate the Government of UAE for organising the Expo 2020 in a splendid way. This expo is also testimony to the resilience of mankind against the once in a century pandemic,” PM Modi said.

“The theme of India’s pavilion is openness, opportunity and growth. Today’s India is one of the most open countries in the world. Open to learning, open to perspectives, open to innovation, open to investment. That is why I invite you to come and invest in our nation.”

“Today, India is a land of opportunities. Be it in the field of arts or commerce, industry or academia, there is opportunity to discover, opportunity to partner, opportunity to progress. Come to India and explore these opportunities. India also offers you maximum growth. Growth in scale, growth in ambition, growth in results. Come to India and be a part of our growth story,” he added.

Prime Minister Modi also highlighted India’s vibrancy and diversity during his speech and said they were reflected in the India pavilion which is one of the largest pavilions in the Dubai Expo. The state-of-the-art 8,750 square metre pavilion will display the emergence of a ‘New India’ to the world.

“Our country is making many advances in the world of technology, research and innovation. Our economic growth is powered by a combination of legacy industries and start-ups. India’s pavilion will showcase the best of India across these multiple areas. It will also showcase investment opportunities in multiple sectors like health, textiles, infrastructure, services and more,” the Prime Minister said.

The Expo 2020 Dubai is also coinciding with India’s ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations in the country’s 75th year of independence. “As India celebrates 75 Years of Independence in the form of Amrit Mahotsav, we invite everyone to visit the India pavilion and capitalise on the opportunities in the resurgent New India,” PM Modi said at the end of his speech.

During the six-month-long Dubai Expo, the world’s biggest trade and commerce bash, 11 key themes will be represented at India’s pavilion, including 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.

The India pavilion, a massive four-floor structure, will reflect the country’s ancient traditions and future ambitions. The exterior of the pavilion will feature an innovative kinetic facade made up of 600 individual colourful blocks. It is developed as a mosaic of rotating panels that will depict different themes as they rotate on their axis.
