According to the sources, the expo 2020 Dubai is expected to get delayed amid coronavirus outbreak.
In a recent online conference, the Expo 2020 steering committee and the foreign participants are expected to delay the event up to a year.
As per the organizers of the event, 11 million overseas visitors would attend the event, billed as a showpiece of culture, business, and technology with pavilions from 192 countries plus concerts and other events.
Expo 2020, which is scheduled to run from October 20 to April 10, 2021, is currently the last major event still officially planned after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were last week postponed by a year, the first such delay in the Games’ 124-year modern history.
A final decision will be made later in a meeting of member states of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), which awards the event, though it is unlikely they would go against the recommendation.
