EXPO 2020

The Sheikh of Dubai was able to obtain the nomination for 2020 Expo in Dubai. If we consider the dimension of the emirate (also including all the UAE), winning was the highest difficulty but Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al-Maktoum was able to win the challenge.

Do you think it was just a question of power? We don’t think so. The emirate of Dubai has no natural resources and it is well known that it has a lot of debts.

We think that the Sheikh won the challenge because he proposed convincing and far more ambitious project than the other competitors. He was able to involve the best talents in the planning of  the event and he focused the attention on topics that are extremely important: renewable energy and “connecting mind”.

For the Italian operators, who live in a country which, like the Emirate of Dubai, has no natural resources, EXPO 2020 represents a big chance to put at the disposal of the Sheikh and his partners their ideas, their competences, their products.

In the next few years there will be many things to realize, not necessarily related to the Expo:

  • A new airport, bigger and larger than the existing existing even if this one is still efficient and modern
  • Infrastructures (such as  road, metro extension, urban waste recycling plant, solar energy production, water production and recycling plant, just for making some examples)
  • Hotels, schools, universities, public buildings
  • Houses
  • New malls (think about the new Design District)

What are you waiting for?  Are you still thinking to continue to work like sub-contractors or are you ready to gain the pole position?

If you think that you can do better than in the past, let’s start networking and working  in team!
