Expo 2020 and Steering Committee explore postponement

On Monday 30 March the Expo 2020 Dubai steering committee met in response to global developments regarding the coronavirus outbreak.

As a result of this meeting, the steering committee collectively agreed to explore with the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the World Expo governing body, the possibility of a one year delay to the opening of Expo 2020.

The BIE will now work with its Member States and Expo 2020 Dubai organisers to establish a change in dates. A final decision on postponement can only be made by the BIE’s Executive Committee and the General Assembly. Article 28 of the BIE Convention stipulates that, a change of dates requires a two-thirds majority vote from Member States of the Organisation.’
