First International Planning Meeting ahead of Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai

26 October 2022

 

Nepal participated in the first International Planning Meeting ahead of Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai. In the program, representatives of more than 100 countries gathered in Osaka this week as part of the first International Planning Meeting (IPM) in preparation for Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai.

 

With 900 days until the opening of the next World Expo, the meeting provided an opportunity for Expo Organisers, officials from the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), and representatives of participating countries and international organisations to review progress and ongoing preparations for the event. Following on from Expo 2020 Dubai and the gradual lifting of travel restrictions related to Covid-19, this first large-scale gathering of all key stakeholders in Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai marks a key step in the journey towards the next World Expo.

The IPM is the first of several to be held before the opening of the Expo on 13 April 2025, as host country and participants cooperate around the development of the Expo’s pavilions, content and experience. Dedicated sessions took place yesterday and today with regard to the development of the Expo’s theme, “Designing Future Society for Our Lives”, as well as more technical aspects relating to the Master Plan, pavilion construction, logistics and operations, as well as participation in the Virtual Expo.

The IPM notably included a visit to the 155-hectare Expo site on Yumeshima Island, where infrastructure works are well underway with plots to be made available next year. The site, which is being conceived as a “People’s Living Laboratory”, will feature three main areas – Pavilion World, Water World and Green World – and will be centred around a large wooden ring. The pavilions of official participants will be situated in Pavilion World, which will include three zones: Saving Lives, Empowering Lives, and Connecting Lives.

On the sidelines of the IPM, nine countries with self-built pavilions - Azerbaijan, Brazil, Czechia, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Qatar and Saudi Arabia - became the very first to sign their participation contracts, having defined details on their presence at the Expo including theme and pavilion size and location.

I am confident the Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai will provide an excellent opportunity for the global community to experiment and demonstrate a desirable way of life in the future.”

World Expos, officially known as International Registered Exhibitions, are global gatherings of nations addressing universal challenges of our time. These unparalleled global events offer a journey inside a chosen theme through engaging and immersive activities. The most recent World Expo, which closed on 31 March 2022, took place in Dubai, UAE under the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, and received more than 24 million visits.
