Expo 2020 Dubai honours 200,000 workers who built the site

Expo 2020 Dubai has created a permanent row of stone columns in the heart of Expo 2020 to honour the 200,000 workers who built the site.

The stone columns all carry the names of the workers who built the Expo 2020 Dubai site from scratch over the last few years.

Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Co-operation and Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai, said of the workers: “Each of them deserves our sincere thanks and appreciation for their tremendous efforts.”

Alongside that, there’s a Workers’ Portrait Series which includes photos and quotes from some of the workforce.

The lasting monuments were created by one of Expo’s key architects Asif Khan who also designed the Expo portals and the Mobility Pavilion.

Work started on Expo 2020 Dubai in 2015. And the work will continue for six months as the site welcomes tens of millions of guests.
