Government of Mauritius announce over 250,000 pavilion visitors to date with new retail outlet enhancing visitor experience

Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE – : The Mauritius Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai has recorded more than 250,000 visitors since the start of the season and is expected to reach its ambitious target of 400,000 visitors by the time the global event finishes.

Visitors to the pavilion have had the unique opportunity to catch a glimpse of everything the charming Indian Ocean island has to offer including its exquisite landscape, rich culture and history, and its progressive and futuristic economy, which is driving its well-deserved reputation as a growing investment hub.

The pavilion has also recently launched a retail outlet on the premises making authentic Mauritian delicacies accessible to UAE residents and tourists. Products available at the store include Mauritian vanilla pods, herbal teas and moringa infusions, fruit jams and pastes, banana chips, natural honey, and unique marine models. The store was established to further enhance the visitor experience, providing a more comprehensive Mauritian journey, while contributing to the achievement of the target visitor number.

Mr. Ken Poonoosamy, Commissioner General for Mauritius Pavilion in Expo 2020 Dubai and Chief Executive Officer, Economic Development Board of Mauritius, said: “Our presence at Expo 2020 has been very encouraging. Throughout the event, we have witnessed a strong appetite for both tourism and investment in our resourceful island. Having reached 250,000 visitors to date, and with a line-up of exciting activities planned for the coming weeks, we are confident in our ability to reach our target of 400,000 visitors experiencing what Mauritius has to offer to the UAE and the wider Middle East region”.

The Mauritius Pavilion at Expo 2020 offers visitors a unique interactive experience, divided into four key spaces. On display is the island’s abundant natural beauty, its biodiversity, the rich heritage and culture of the country, and the wide range of investment opportunities available across key sectors. The newly opened shop inside the pavilion is also attracting visitors looking to take home a piece of the island paradise.

An array of activities is in the pipeline set to drive further traffic to the Pavilion, including the Mauritian National Day on 15 March and Thematic Water Week from 20-26 March.
