DUBAI – April 1, 2022:  Brazil today said the country’s
participation at the Expo 2020 Dubai catalyzed and cemented its relationships
with the UAE, the Middle East and other global nations that was part of the
nearly 200 country participants of the six-month long show.

In a closing note, Brazil Pavilion
spokespersons expressed their appreciation for the UAE Government and the Expo
organisors for concluding a remarkably well organized world expo that stood out
in its message to the humanity on sustainability and in the promotion of global
trade and investment as well as political and cultural relationships between
participating countries.

“For Brazil, the participation was a full-spectrum
affair for half a year marked by the visit of the Prime Minister and other high
level dignitaries and delegations to eye-catching cultural bonanza and
high-street cooking events, to presenting an immersive experience to potential
tourists on Brazil’s Amazon rainforest through a recreation of the diverse
landscape of the country through cutting-edge technology,” said Elias Martins
Filho, Commissioner General of Brazil Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The US$ 20 million Brazil Pavilion over 4,000
square feet with a shallow water blade across half of its space attracted 2.1 million
visitors towards the close of the expo.

One of the distinctive highlights of Brazil’s
participation was the visit of the country’s President Jair Bolsonaro and his
meetings with the various UAE ruling dignitaries. During his visit, Brazil also
conferred the country’s highest honour, the National Order of the Southern
Cross on HH. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime
Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.

“From Capoeira, the martial art blended with music
and dance from the northeast, to Michelin Guide-listed `Bib Gourmand,’ Chef Rodrigo Oliviero’s
live Caatinga Biome Cooking Show and serious mutual trade and investment
explorations as well as promotion of 
Brazilian tourism, Expo 2020 Dubai offered us a diverse platform. We are
confident to carry forward the connections we made during the expo to the
fruitful future of all partners we have been fortunate to connect with,” he

Brazil also donated a host of physical and digital pavilion memorabilia
to the Expo Archives to keep the spirit of the memory of its participation

During the expo, the Brazil Pavilion also celebrated the
achievement of being chosen as a country which houses three of the seven world
wonders and nature attractions– the Iguacu waterfalls, the Amazon, and The
Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, built in 1931. New7Wonders, the
organization that leads the selection of the new seven wonders of world and
nature also unveiled Wonder Markers at the Brazil Pavilion.

“Overall, we
have been able to present a complete picture of Brazil to a global audience and
we are confident that this has done immense good to us in promoting the
country’s culture,
food, trade, travel and tourism and investments,” said Raphael Nascimento, Brazil Pavilion

The Brazilian
 and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil)
is the nodal agency that managed the country’s participation at Expo 2020 Dubai.
