26 September 2023, Riyadh: The Royal Commission for Riyadh City, the government entity leading the Kingdom’s bid to host World Expo 2030, in co-operation with the Riyadh Expo 2030 technical team, organized a seminar on the Kingdom’s expo sub-theme in Paris.
The seminar titled ‘Prosperity for All’, a sub-theme of Riyadh Expo 2030, was attended by delegates from the member countries of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), an inter-governmental organization that regulates World Expo.
During the seminar, H.E. Ahmed Al-Khateeb, Minister of Tourism, Jerry Inzerillo, CEO of Diriyah Gate Development Authority, and Daniel Sobel, Senior Adviser and Inclusiveness expert, addressed the BIE delegates and highlighted the Kingdom’s expo vision and the theme of the seminar.
H.E. Al-Khateeb said the Riyadh Expo 2030 theme ‘The Era of Change: Together for a Foresighted Tomorrow’ aligns with the Kingdom’s commitment to fostering international collaboration and addressing global disparities towards a more inclusive and sustainable world.
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is committed as a host and as an equal partner to working with all of you to create a world more prosperity is more than a vision but a collective reality,” the minister said.
Speaking on the occasion, Jerry Inzerillo said: “The Kingdom is undergoing unprecedented development in various fields and in openness in various sectors, including investment, culture, and tourism, which will contribute to delivering an exceptional edition of the Riyadh Expo 2030.”
He added: “We do not want to win the Expo for the sake of wining the Expo, we want to use it to show a rich genuine welcoming culture.” He praised the significant developmental initiatives and major projects, which make the Kingdom the ideal destination for hosting the Expo.
In his address, Daniel Sobel said: “The sub-theme ‘Prosperity for All’ points to the importance of inclusive education in providing equal opportunities for all segments of society.”
“One of the things which is exciting about Saudi Arabia more than any other country that I found is the thirst for excellence in education, which will contribute to achieving ‘Prosperity for All’,” he added.
The seminar in Paris is part of a series of seminars organized by the Royal Commission for Riyadh City to introduce the main theme and sub-themes of the Riyadh Expo 2030, establish connections with participating countries, and gather ideas and opinions from delegates regarding the suitability of the themes for their respective nations.
