Saudi Arabia Provides a Status Report in Paris While Advancing Plans for the Riyadh Expo

The organizing committee for Expo 2030 in Saudi Arabia declared that it will be held “by the world, for the world” in their first progress report following Riyadh’s selection as the host city.

Abdulaziz Alghannam, director general of the Riyadh Expo 2030 office at the Royal Commission for Riyadh City, stressed the ongoing efforts for Expo registration and the preparation for creating the legal framework to enable international participation in the event during his speech at the 174th General Assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions in Paris.

The delegation also included representatives from the Kingdom’s Public Investment Fund, according to a post on X by Riyadh Expo.

On Nov. 28, 2023, at the 173rd BIE General Assembly, Saudi Arabia was chosen to host the 2030 event. The Expo is scheduled to run from Oct. 1, 2030, to March 31, 2031.

It intends to welcome 29 international organizations and 197 nations.

“The Era of Change: Together for a Foresighted Tomorrow” is the theme, which perfectly captures Saudi Arabia’s determination to leverage the Expo to hasten the country’s progress toward the intended sustainable development goals. Organized around three inclusive sub-themes, the event’s main focus will be on using innovation and research to improve the future.

At the highest levels, preparations have been ongoing since the Kingdom was chosen to host, including the creation of infrastructure and the creation of the registration dossier.
