The Horticulture Expo 2023 Doha celebrated Sunday the National Day of Kuwait, in the presence of a number of officials from the two countries and heads of diplomatic missions accredited to the State.
The celebrations featured a group of cultural, heritage and artistic events and welcoming speeches.
Expo 2023 Doha Commissioner General HE Bader al-Dafa appreciated the participation of Kuwait in Expo 2023 Doha, stressing that Qatar's success in organising this global exhibition is a success for all brothers, friends and partners, and that Kuwait's participation in the exhibition is an opportunity to learn the successful stories of Qatar in confronting climate change, in implementing its policies in food and water security, and in its plans to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
Al-Dafa added that Kuwait has accumulated important experiences in organising conferences related to agriculture such as its annual international agricultural food exhibition, which has become a meeting place for producers, importers, manufacturers and investors as well as showcasing the latest products and solutions related to agriculture and food security.
He added that Kuwait plays an important role in supporting sustainable agriculture and green agriculture throughout the developing world.
For her part, Commissioner General of the Kuwaiti Pavilion at Expo 2023 Doha Eng Samira al-Kandari affirmed her country's keenness on implementing Kuwait Vision 2035 by paying attention to the issue of sustainable development and participating in Expo Doha, specifically the issue of horticulture and combating desertification, given the importance of this topic not only for Kuwait and its surroundings but also for the entire world and for all of humanity, which constitutes a great opportunity to learn about the experiences of countries in combating desertification and the efforts of those concerned with the environment and agriculture to benefit from them as well as to benefit from the latest findings of technology and experts in this field, a matter which helps in addressing the problem of desertification and achieving sustainability.
Al-Kandari pointed out that the Kuwaiti pavilion seeks to achieve a distinguished and effective participation that conveys her country's efforts in horticulture in general and the issue of combating desertification in particular.
She said that the presence and participation differs from other participations due to the fraternal relations between Kuwait and Qatar and the support received in preparing for the Kuwaiti pavilion, confirming the success of Qatar in preparing and organizing the Expo and its accompanying activities as well as many organizational aspects, perhaps the most recent of which is organizing the Asian Cup, wishing Qatar more success as its success is for all and for the Gulf Cooperation Council countries in particular.
The national and honorary days at the expo offer times to honor all international participants whose number reaches over 80 to shine a spotlight on their cultures and achievements, in addition to showcasing their pavilions and programs. All these national and honorary days feature hoisting the flag ceremonies at the National Day celebration square, followed by speeches and cultural shows at the Expo 2023 Doha that runs until March 28, 2024.
