Question for written answer E-000936-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Philippe Juvin (PPE)

 Subject:  No EU pavilion at the World Expo 2020
 Answer in writing 

At the World Expo in Milan in 2015, the EU had its own pavilion alongside those set up by 19 of its Member States.

In 2020, a new universal exhibition, with a particular focus on mobility and sustainable development, will be held in Dubai.

It is vital that the EU should have a presence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), given the country’s geostrategic position in the region. However, we have learnt that the EU will not have its own pavilion at this exhibition.

Can the Commission confirm this and, if it is indeed the case, explain why the decision was taken and say whether it was taken at a meeting of the College of Commissioners?
