Excitement is building for the event that will run from October 1, 2021 until March 31, 2022, with more than 190 participating countries and millions of visitors. Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, director general of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, said: "Our World Expo has a mission to inspire hope, and in the coming weeks we will begin to share new details and ideas about space, health and wellness, travel and connectivity and other subjects that sit at the heart of this Expo. We hope that people will join us to achieve our objectives to bring the world together and put humanity and the planet on the right path towards dignity for all." Progress on the Expo site has continued, with more than 210 million work hours completed to date.
