At Expo 2020
The expo has three subthemes: opportunity, mobility and sustainability. With its deep connection to water and nature, Guinea will participate in the sustainability theme. By participating at Expo 2020, Guinea affirms its position on a global platform as an ambitious player in West Africa and encourages the visiting public to visit and invest in Guinea.
A specially chosen Expo team together with the Committee of Sages initiated the theme and idea for Guinea’s participation at Expo 2020. The committee comprises of experts in their field and is respected for their vast knowledge. Further and together with the Expo consultants, the Guinea team translated the thematic idea into various sections at the pavilion and for marketing communications.

With a focus on investment, Guinea will also present – at the pavilion and through events and marketing –opportunities for global investors in the areas of agriculture, energy, tourism, infrastructure, ICT and mining. The events and marketing will also profile leading companies from Guinea.
Besides presenting Guinea to the world, the pavilion and events will be used as a platform to address and invite solutions to some of Guinea’s pressing challenges including the use of water.
