The UAE is looking to deepen engagement with countries across the African continent by cooperating on projects and setting up partnerships in key sectors.
That was a remark from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai during his visit to the African dining hall, Alkebulan.
His Highness expressed his happiness at the participation of African countries in Expo 2020 Dubai saying they have showcased their rich cultural heritage and unique investment opportunities aptly.
Capturing the essence of Africa, Alkebulan transports visitors on a journey into the continent’s cultural diversity and gastronomic landscape, bringing together people, communities and nations. The dining hall is a celebration of African cuisine, designed as a showcase of contemporary African food and music from across the continent.
Each counter and concept has its own design that honours the individuality of the region, cuisine and chef.
For the first time in the 170-year history of World Expos, every African nation is participating, each with its own pavilion.
