In the first two months of Croatia’s participation in the World Exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai, the Croatian Pavilion got a visit from numerous foreign delegations, commissioner generals and pavilion directors, as well as representatives from universities and other educational institutions. Apart from that, the Director of the Croatian Pavilion and his staff went on official visits to other pavilions, took part in informal gatherings, National Day celebrations and various economic forums.

The said events were an opportunity for the Director and the staff of the Croatian Pavilion to present the country’s rich natural and cultural heritage, as well as the achievements of the great minds of Croatia that helped make the country recognizable in the world.

The meetings that were held during the official visits to the Croatian Pavilion included an exchange of opinions regarding cooperations between the countries and their experiences from the World Exhibition. A frequent topic of conversation was the diversity of tourist offers in Croatia, but also the management of the tourism sector, considering, in particular, the challenges during the pandemic. Also, an indispensable topic was the Croatian diaspora living in countries all over the world. In this regard, the Croaticum program was presented, which enables younger generations to learn the Croatian language and familiarize themselves with the culture and traditions. The conversations with the university representatives focused on potential cooperations between educational institutions, and the development and implementation of professional development programs for youth.  

The Director and his staff also had the opportunity to learn about the culture and traditions of the countries whose pavilions they visited. During the official visits, they were introduced to their respective themes, pavilion designs and the message the countries are trying to convey during the World Exhibition. The conversations revolved around various cooperation possibilities,  especially in the tourism, economics and education sectors.
