Show yourself to the world as a tourist destination, with breathtaking landscapes, good food and a very rich culture, but also like markets open to foreign investment in all fields, especially after the pandemic. These days are the South American countries the protagonists of Expo 2020 Dubai: particularly violently affected by Covid, this universal exhibition represents for everyone an opportunity to restart, to make their potential known in this part of the world, and beyond. Expo is first of all build relations, diplomatic and commercial, underlined the President of Colombia, Ivan Duque Marquez, on the occasion of the National Day of the country which took place yesterday, declaring that it wants to reach an exchange of one billion dollars with the Arab Emirates by 2030.
Relations that San Marino is also consolidating, with another South American country, the Brazil, the first economy in Latin America. The Secretary of State for Tourism, Federico Pedini Amati, just at the opening of the Expo, had met the Brazilian Minister for Tourism, Gilson Machado, to start a cooperation agreement between countries: increase the flow of travelers between the two nations, facilitate travel and grant discounts on purchases. Agreement that could materialize already at the end of this week, when the San Marino Secretary of State will be back in Dubai, and Brazil’s national day will be celebrated, scheduled for November 15th.
The various pavilions, from the Peruvian one, passing through Argentina, to Uruguay, the second largest producer of clean energy in the world, to Guyana, where sustainable tourism comes, and to Paraguay, where the protagonists are landscape attractions and art, first of all show the identity of the countries they represent. Today, however, here in the connection square, we celebrate the Venezuela, one of the 17 countries in the world with the greatest biodiversity: at the center, once again, art, music, natural resources and the many faces of a people and an emerging country, looking for investments and new markets.
