Al Ansari Exchange launches campaign to back Dubai’s Expo 2020 bid
28 Jan 2013
Al Ansari Exchange, a UAE based foreign exchange and worldwide money transfer company, has announced its full support for Dubai’s candidacy as host city to the World Expo 2020. Held every five years over a period of six months, the World Expo aims to promote the development of the world economy, culture, science and technology. The Expo has never been held in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia and so Al Ansari Exchange and other major organizations across the nation are backing Dubai’s efforts to make history.
The company will adopt the official ‘Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE Candidate City’ logo in its corporate email signatures and official correspondence to express full support for the event across all its international agents and banks. All Al Ansari Exchange receipts will also feature the logo until September 2013, and special ‘Bid Supporter’ stickers will be displayed in more than 120 of its branches across the UAE.
“Since the exhibition held in London in 1851, the World Expos has served as a vital platform for strengthening global unity, celebrating cultural diversity and showcasing technological advancements. The Expo brings significant economic, cultural and social rewards to its host, so we are all pushing hard behind Dubai’s candidacy. A win would be significant not only locally but regionally as well. Al Ansari Exchange is proud to be part of efforts to make history and uplift the image of the UAE and the entire MENA & SA region for the world to admire,” said Rashed Ali Al Ansari, General Manager, Al Ansari Exchange.
The next World Expo will be held in Milan, Italy, in 2015 with a focus on ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.’ The UAE is bidding to host the World Expo 2020 in Dubai under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.’ Al Ansari Exchange supports the vision of organizing Dubai Expo 2020 as a platform for connectivity to help forge new partnerships for growth and sustainability amidst the changing global economic and social landscapes.
