(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 19 - Expo 2020 Dubai said that had clocked
up 10,188,769 visits as of 18 January.
The World Fair said visitors were attracted by the first Global Goals Week to be held outside of New York and a star-studded K-pop concert.
Expo 2020 Dubai's Theme Weeks are proving popular thanks to a range of compelling forums, panel discussions and exciting on-site activations, it said. Spearheading a major call to action, Global Goals Week is running from 15-22 January, in association with the United Nations, to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The goals recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality and spur economic growth, while also tackling climate change and working to preserve oceans and forests.
Expo 2020 Dubai's virtual visitation has passed the 65 million mark, driven by the range of entertainment available via Live@Expo, such as popular performances by Korea's top K-pop stars and Academy and Grammy Award Winner, A.R. Rahman, as well as extensive coverage of the Global Goals Week.
The World Fair, the first held in the Middle East, runs until March 31. (ANSA).
