    From the perspective of the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development, the World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai is a unique opportunity to strengthen the presence of Polish entrepreneurs in the important and very promising markets of the Arab Gulf and the Middle East. We are actively supporting the Polish Trade and Investment Agency (PAIH) in planning and implementing an economic program. As part of their Industry Promotion Programs, PARP organizes national stands at the most important trade fairs taking place in the United Arab Emirates in 2020–2022 and makes them available to Polish companies. All participants in these economic missions organized by PARP will not only be able to use the national stands, but will also take part in additional business meetings organized by us, together with PAIH, in the Polish Pavilion at the World Exhibition. The Agency will also be involved in the preparation and promotion of the most important economic event which will take place during Expo Dubai 2020; for Polish companies this will undoubtedly be the Polish-Emirate Economic Forum. Economic forums, traditionally organized during World Exhibitions, always attract a large number of Polish companies, not only the largest ones, but also small and medium-sized businesses, who are PARP’s traditional clients. Such forums allow for the establishment of economic contacts that last long after the end of the World Exhibition. For those companies who aim to increase their presence in the Arab Gulf markets, the Agency has made it possible to apply to the “Go To Brand” program. I invite you to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai.

  • Barbara Schabowska
    At the Adam Mickiewicz Institute we are convinced that Poland’s international image is best strengthened by showing the richness and value of Polish culture. It is through these prisms that politicians, journalists and company managers all over the world look at our country. When they assess the investment conditions, prospects for cooperation, or analyse data, they also have the values of Polish culture in mind.
    The Adam Mickiewicz Institute promotes Polish culture abroad, highlighting its exceptional and unique value. For over twenty years, we have been reaching foreign partners and opinion leaders with this message and, through them, recipients from all over the world. Expo in Dubai is another great opportunity for this. We will show the diversity and richness of Polish culture, both in the material and traditional sense, but also in the spheres of ideas and thinking about the future. And we approach this seriously, as Polish culture is very important; it is our greatest asset.

  • Paweł Jabłoński
    We are glad that Expo is being organized for the first time in an Arab state. Poland has traditionally maintained very good relations with the countries of this region. Due to their location and excellent transport infrastructure, the United Arab Emirates are one of the most important intermediaries in economic contacts with Europe – not only for the countries of the Middle East, but also Africa and South Asia; an area made up of 72 countries, inhabited by nearly 2.8 billion people. Expo 2020 creates a unique opportunity for our entrepreneurs to gain new partners from these huge markets. That is why we are working very intensively on what Poland is going to offer. I am convinced that, thanks to the presence of many Polish companies, our country will present itself in Dubai as a partner that offers the latest, innovative solutions, and environmentally-friendly technologies inspired by nature, which all support the responsible development of our economy and society. Poland’s participation in the exhibition will strengthen our political, diplomatic and, above all, economic relations with the countries of the region.

    Expo 2020 Dubai is to be a return to the original assumptions of world exhibitions. The exhibitions, which have been organized since 1751, were initially a forum for presenting scientific achievements, sharing knowledge and new technological possibilities. It is very important that one of the main goals of Poland’s presence at Expo 2020 Dubai is to build lasting relationships in the field of scientific cooperation. It is also gratifying that the exhibition’s motto, “Connecting minds, Creating the future”, clearly draws attention to scientific and technological achievements, especially those that look to the future. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education, in cooperation with the Copernicus Science Centre and NAWA, will have a program of activities promoting Polish science as part of Poland’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai.

    The participation of the Ministry for Climate and the Environment in the World Exhibition is an opportunity to highlight our efforts and achievements in the pursuit of climate neutrality and to present flagship initiatives related to ensuring energy independence, the development of electromobility and the transfer of Polish green technologies.
    The vision of Poland outlined by the Ministry for Climate and the Environment is for economic growth which respects the climate and our rich natural environment, the development of cities towards climate neutrality and greater resistance to climate change, diversification of energy sources and sustainable production and consumption patterns. The World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai is an opportunity for the Ministry for Climate and the Environment to present the wealth of our natural environment and a comprehensive approach to sustainable development. We also want to show good practices in the field of financing environmental protection. The exhibition in Dubai will also be an opportunity to transfer Polish green technologies to the Arab Gulf countries.

    As the Rector of the technical university, I am proud and honoured by the proposal for students of design at Lodz University of Technology to design the outfits for the staff of the Polish Pavilion at Expo in Dubai.
    The collection of outfits will be created as part of a competition organized by the Faculty of Materials Technology and Textile Design of our University. The best designs will be selected from among the students’ final designs and then will be carefully refined and adapted to the needs of the staff of the Polish Pavilion, taking into account the climatic conditions.

    The Cracow University of Economics educates future economists and managers for whom economic subjects are extremely important. We are an institution open to new opportunities and challenges. We focus on multi-culturalism and internationalization. Studying is not only a time to gain academic knowledge. It is also a great opportunity to use the acquired knowledge in practice; a time to travel and broaden one’s horizons. The participation of our students in the World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai will allow them to gain valuable experience and to establish international contacts. It will allow students to look at economic development and technological progress from a completely different perspective. The period in higher education is a time when our students’ views of the world are consciously shaped. I am convinced that their competences and skills will allow them to represent Poland proudly on the international arena. I believe that by participating in Expo, they will gain valuable experience that will contribute to their further professional development.

  • Jakub Doński-Lesiuk
    The Faculty of Economics and Sociology of the University of Lodz, appointed by His Magnificence the Rector to cooperate with the Expo 2020 Dubai Team, offers the possibility of an education in 26 undergraduate and graduate programs. Nearly 4.500 students have studied in our Faculty. We believe that our students studying Logistics, Finance and International Business, as well as International Economic Relations, will in a special way, make up the excellent staff of the Polish Pavilion during the World Expo in Dubai. The internships in the Polish Pavilion and, we very much hope, the involvement of our students in other events promoting Lodz, the Lodz Region and what Polish Science can offer, will contribute to getting to know each of them better as links in the organizational chain. The encounter with a number of challenges and daily duties accompanying the work placement in the Polish Pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai will be an excellent school of life for them, given them the opportunity to acquire competences so necessary in business. We have no doubt that these competences will be to their advantage when, after graduating from university, they will be faced with the choice of what role they want to fill on the labour market and of which direction they wish to pursue. We are very pleased with the openness of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency as well as the professionalism and kindness of their Expo 2020 Dubai Team. We are glad that, in order to present the best in the Polish Pavilion in Dubai, we will work together to present the best examples of what is Polish; well prepared, competent and ambitious students from the University of Lodz!

    The exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences are the pillars of modern science. Today, academic cooperation is global, which does not change the fact that breakthrough discoveries and ideas are often born in local universities, research centres or companies. Expo 2020 Dubai offers great opportunities to present national, but also regional achievements at an international forum. I am convinced that it will be a very successful promotion of Poland but I am also proud that the University of Bialystok has the opportunity to contribute as a partner of the Podlaskie Region. Especially since, for the Podlaskie Region and the areas of study at our university, the motto of the Polish Pavilion, “Creativity inspired by nature”, seems to be particularly appropriate. Our presence at Expo is also part of the university’s mission, which is not only intensively to develop research, but also to increase the level of internationalization and close cooperation with the socio-economic environment.

  • Wawrzyniec Konarski
    The dynamic development of the United Arab Emirates has continued, without interruption, since the 1960s, achieving results that are difficult to replicate elsewhere. Dubai remains, primarily, a symbol of economic and civilisational change in this region of our globe. For this reason, its choice as the site of the Expo World Exhibition eloquently underlines the advances Dubai has made. You can see the scale of these changes by confronting the museum collections and architectural monuments there with the contemporary face of Dubai, which I experienced personally, four years ago. Dubai’s advancement is inspiring not only for the visiting representatives of various states and economic structure, but also for universities and it prompts one to draw conclusions. Hence, the involvement of representatives from our university; talented and ambitious young people, working for the positive image of Vistula University as well as their own. In the events which create the atmosphere of the Exhibition, there is clear evidence of the synergy between their ambitions and the plans of the university. There is also a multicultural synergy, which is emphatically reflected by Vistula University’s first place in terms of internationalisation among all universities in Poland. We educate students from 100 countries around the world and we want to show our unique qualities by contributing to the functioning of the Polish Pavilion. The Expo in Dubai will contribute to this goal enormously.

    I consider representing Poland at the international exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai as a great honour for our university. It will also be a unique and extremely valuable experience that fits with the mission of the Vistula School of Hospitality. We focus on the best preparation of graduates for the needs of industries dealing with tourism, event organisation and culinary arts, promoting the idea of entrepreneurship, based on a system of co-operation with practitioners and the business environment.
    Our students, who will serve at the Polish Pavilion in Dubai, will experience a fantastic lesson. They will feel how such events create a space for meetings, closeness and emotions; how experiences and memories are created, how magic is born, and relationships are established. They will also have the opportunity to look at the world through the prism of tourism, in particular, its sustainable development, which should take into account the green and digital directions of its transformation.
    I hope that, during the world’s largest exhibition, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the future of the tourism sector, which needs to be made more resilient and sustainable, learning from the current crisis caused by the pandemic and anticipating new trends and consumer patterns. During Expo 2020 Dubai, we want to promote the ideas that guide us and the values that are closest to us. Our participation in this event is an important investment that will certainly benefit us all.

    For many years, the Bialystok University of Technology has been focused on scientific and socio-economic international cooperation in conjunction with care for the ecosystem.
    “When to an excellent and admirable natural disposition there is added a certain system and training of education, then from that combination arises an extraordinary perfection of character”. – these words of Cicero inspire students and scholars of the Bialystok University of Technology. We are extremely proud that our students have designed a temporary exhibition of the Podlaskie Region. Youthful creativity and innovation are combined with respect for nature and tradition. Using these elements we want to present the Podlaskie Region and the Bialystok University of Technology. A direct meeting with representatives of the business world can really increase interest in the commercialization of our scientific research results that concern global issues.

    The participation of the Podlaskie Region in the World Exhibition is, above all, an opportunity to present innovative ideas that are embedded in Podlasie’s reality. Our presence at the Expo in Dubai is also an opportunity to promote industries that are ambassadors of the Podlasie economy, such as wooden furniture, yachts, metal machinery, food and the dynamically-developing IT industry. I believe that our entrepreneurs will establish new business contacts that will allow them to increase their presence on foreign markets and promote our economy. I am very glad that, thanks to the efforts of the Provincial Government and our academic community, the national pavilion, Poland’s showpiece in Dubai, can play another extremely important role after fulfilling its mission during Expo. I am convinced that the XYLOPOLIS Centre of Wood Art and Science which is planned to be built, has the chance to be located in Bialystok, in an exact copy of the Polish Pavilion. This will be another important step in the development of science and technology and a showpiece of our region.

We cultivate tradition, while searching for and implementing new technological solutions, economic development and entrepreneurship, as well as the richness of nature; these are our priorities.

We set ourselves an ambitious path to a green environment and consistently implement our mission to improve the quality of life for present and future generations.
    During Expo, we will present our passion for change and our willingness to do so; to discover and actively work towards a green transformation. We have the energy and strength which we want to share with visitors to our exhibition in the Polish Pavilion. We will emphasize the enormous potential of the Silesian Region, in the form of a rich and varied tourism and cultural offer. We are a region of advanced technologies with the best investment climate. We would like to invite everyone to an innovative exhibition, the leitmotif of which will be Koniaków lace; as a symbolic network of connections between various elements of our region, forming a harmonious whole.

    The motto of Expo 2020, “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,” reflects the same strategy and vision with which we approach our region. The Silesian Region is changing dynamically. We set ourselves an ambitious path to a green environment and consistently implement our mission to improve the quality of life for present and future generations.
    During Expo, we will present our passion for change and our willingness to do so; to discover and actively work towards a green transformation. We have the energy and strength which we want to share with visitors to our exhibition in the Polish Pavilion. We will emphasize the enormous potential of the Silesian Region, in the form of a rich and varied tourism and cultural offer. We are a region of advanced technologies with the best investment climate. We would like to invite everyone to an innovative exhibition, the leitmotif of which will be Koniaków lace; as a symbolic network of connections between various elements of our region, forming a harmonious whole.
    I cordially invite you to visit us!

    Kujawy and Pomerania have a lot to offer visitors from all over the world. We are an attractive tourist region with a rich history and numerous monuments. Nicolaus Copernicus was born here, and the wonderful astronomical traditions are still continued. Our common approach combines respect for heritage with the search for modern solutions. Using the potential of our agriculture, we produce high-quality food and our region also includes many innovative enterprises open to cooperation with foreign partners.

    Promotion is a very important element for the local government of the Podkarpackie Region. Hence, we decided to join the Expo 2020 Dubai project. During this, the largest event of its type in the world, we want to show our opportunities and advantages as one of the most innovative regions in the country. We are the only region to choose ”Aviation and Cosmonautics” as one of our smart specializations. This had to be so, since almost 90% of this industry in Poland is concentrated in our Region. The figure of Ignacy Łukasiewicz will be the main theme of our exhibition. Expo’s motto, “Connecting minds, Creating the future”, describes him perfectly. Participation in Expo 2020 is a great honour, challenge and commitment for us. I would like to thank the Polish Government and the Polish Investment and Trade Agency for the opportunity to be involved in such interesting cooperation at the World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai.

    During Expo 2020 Dubai, we aim to highlight the potential of the Lublin Region, especially in the food industry and in so-called medical tourism. High-quality regional food products, a traditional university base and friendly conditions for business, are all assets that attract new investors to the Lublin Region. I think that by strengthening this message during Expo, we will reach an even larger audience in Poland and around the world, and we will convince the inhabitants of the Region to participate actively in activities to promote our Region.

    The modern world poses many challenges for its inhabitants and one of the key questions posed by humanity is how to continually improve quality of life. By participating in the World Expo in Dubai, we want to present Lodz as the host of Horticultural Expo 2029, which will be devoted to shaping the urban landscape and using the potential of greenery in cities. We will focus on the exchange of experiences and solutions that improve quality of life, while respecting nature and tradition. It is also important for us to promote the economic aspects of our city and support our entrepreneurs in searching for new markets and in building lasting trade relations.

    The dynamic development of civilization constantly presents us with new challenges. Ambitious development plans must be implemented so that they do not endanger human health and life, and do not degrade the natural environment of our planet. Thousands of decisions regarding urbanization, agriculture, the maritime economy and crisis management are today made on the basis of data from satellites. The ever-growing number of satellites and other objects in orbit, means that tools to observe them and prevent collisions are indispensable. Thanks to the achievements of Polish astronomy and the cooperation of institutions and companies in the space sector, the Polish Space Agency (POLSA) is developing a unique network of observation telescopes located in different parts of the world, creating the National System of Situational Awareness in Outer Space, which monitors threats on an ongoing basis. The Agency also coordinates work on providing access to orbital Earth observation data and tools for its use by various sectors of the government administration and the economy. We also support scientific research and development of space technologies, striving to develop this industry into a strong branch of Poland’s economy. We would like to present Poland’s activities and achievements in these areas during Expo. We invite you to join POLSA during Space Week and to participate in our educational activities in the Polish Pavilion, where space will be an important element.

    The Sejm (the lower house of the Polish Parliament) of the Republic of Poland declared 2021 as the year of Stanisław Lem. This outstanding writer formulated many visionary descriptions of the cosmos that were way ahead of their time. In his “Star Diaries”, for example, he describes the problem of cosmic debris: “In their technical phase, every civilization slowly begins to sink into debris. This causes enormous problems, until it leads to the dumping of the debris into space. In order to avoid it interfering too much with cosmonautics, the debris is placed in a specially isolated orbit. This is how a growing ring of space landfills is created, and its presence allows one to identify a higher era of progress. Cosmic themes in the writer’s work will be presented in many ways in the Polish Pavilion, including in projects with the participation of the Polish Space Agency.

    The World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai is a unique opportunity to present Poland’s activity in the field of space, especially since the upcoming edition strongly emphasizes it through the planned Space Week and dedicated thematic paths.

    Being present at Expo 2020 Dubai is a great opportunity to strengthen contacts with the Middle East and to establish international cooperation. I am convinced that both the activities of ARP in the offshore industry, which is to support the development of the offshore wind farm market, and our investments in the gaming industry will be of interest to foreign contractors. Through our activity, we would like to encourage the entire global community to use innovative solutions and create new technologies for the 21st century.
