Expo 2020: A message of peace, tolerance from UAE to the world

Dr. Matar Hamed Al Niyadi, UAE Ambassador to Kuwait, has said that Expo 2020 Dubai sends a message of peace and tolerance from the UAE to the entire world, as it will gather participants and visitors from around the world for six months in a display of innovation and social and cultural development.

In an interview with the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Dr. Al Niyadi stated that the UAE’s hosting of the Expo during the COVID-19 pandemic highlights its ability to address all types of challenges, noting its related role in providing over 2,200 tonnes of medical aid to 135 countries.

Asked about the Expo’s role in drafting key economic, development and cultural orientations for the post-COVID-19 era, he pointed out that it aims to create opportunities for cooperation and cultural exchange, stressing that the event will promote the values of peaceful coexistence among different cultures and religions.

On the expo’s major role in preparing and motivating future leaders and spreading the culture of excellence and innovation, he stressed, “The event’s Youth Communication Platform will launch numerous initiatives to ensure that the youth can play a pivotal role.”

Speaking about climate change, which is a key pillar of the Expo’s activities, Al Niyadi affirmed that the world prioritises climate change and the need to mitigate its repercussions, along with adapting to its implications without affecting wellbeing and economic growth. The UAE is one of the first countries that took significant steps in this regard by adopting the ‘Energy Strategy 2050’, and other programmes, he added, explaining that the UAE’s efforts to protect the environment and promote agriculture is part of the legacy instilled by the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which is reflected by its various government policies and activities.

The value of trade between the UAE and Kuwait exceeded Dhs30 billion in 2020 and posted an increase in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020, he added.

Meanwhile, Shycocan Corporation on Monday announced their appointment as the Official Safety Partner for the India Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.

Under the partnership, Shycocan will install its certified innovative breakthrough technology virus-attenuation devices, scientifically evidenced to neutralise, and help curb the spread of virus in the current pandemic in enclosed spaces with up to 99.9% efficacy rates, all across the legend India pavilion.

The devices will be positioned at the Indian Pavilion to prevent transmission of Coronavirus in enclosed spaces, ensuring visitor safety.

The cylindrical device when mounted has an effective coverage area of 1,000 square feet. Its innovative technology when activated produces high-intensity photons that are safe for humans, animals, and the environment. The photons emanate negatively charged electrons as they strike surfaces in the area and neutralize the entire family of both surface and air-borne Coronavirus. The device works on all current and future variants, mutations of the virus, protecting people’s health and saving businesses. Additionally, it does not harm the friendly bacterial ecosystem and microbes that thrive in the environment and are essential for our immunity.

Dilip Chenoy, Secretary General, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and supervisor of the India pavilion said, “India’s massive four floor pavilion aims to captivate millions of visitors from across the globe. With this year’s theme being connecting minds, creating the future, we are committed to leveraging technological advancements in creating a smarter, safer, and more balanced world. Our association with Shycocan Corporation in securing the Indian pavilion with their virus attenuation devices is a testament to our efforts in creating the right environment for visitors in the aftermath of the pandemic.”

Alok Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at Shycocan Corporation, said, “India & UAE have always shared fantastic trade and country relations over decades.

Now we all face one of our biggest challenges in recent human history when both livelihoods and lives are being lost.

The EXPO2020Dubai is one of the largest and most prestigious events in the world and is making a pioneering effort in helping restore normalcy and drive growth. We thank FICCI for choosing Shycocan Corporation as the Official Safety Partners of the India Pavilion.

This shall help showcase the cutting-edge technology of our Made in India, Made for the World, Virus Attenuation Device, the Shycocan and prove its efficacy by helping protect both the exhibitors and customers who attend the India Pavilion. Shycocan disables the family and variants of Coronavirus with up to 99.9% efficacy indoors making it safe for people to work and live safely, bring back life to normal.”

Since the launch of Shycocan at the UAE’s ICPM Healthcare Conference & Exhibition, considerable progress has already been made in helping schools, colleges, hospitals, hotels, offices, restaurants, auditoriums, transportation, retail, and more get back to normalcy, while serving customers in a safe environment.

In addition to the technology, Shycocan also offers customised consultations, a strong support and service network across the UAE, and a post-installation audit.
