Dubai will offer COVID-19 vaccines to official representatives of countries participating in Expo 2020 Dubai, due to be held from October this year to March 2022, the emirate’s crown prince said on Wednesday.
Regional business and tourism hub Dubai is relying on the global fair, which had been postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, to give its economy a boost, Reuters reports.

Expo 2020 Dubai will be the world’s gateway of hope for life returning to normal, he said.
– In October, Dubai and the United Arab Emirates will open their arms to the whole world for new horizons of constructive global cooperation – added Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed al-Maktoum.
