Saudi Arabia will participate in the Expo 2025 Osaka in Japan, it was announced on the sidelines of the International Planning Meeting (IPM) held in Osaka, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Wednesday (Oct 26).

As of October 25, 2022, 142 countries and regions and 8 international organizations have confirmed their participation in Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan.

Expo 2025 Osaka in Japan will take place for six months during 2025, opening 13 April 2025 and closing 13 October 2025.

The upcoming expo will act as another platform through which Saudi Arabia can introduce the world to its culture, heritage and innovations following in the footsteps of the success that the Kingdom's pavilion achieved in the Dubai Expo 2020 and that won an award within the ‘Best Pavilion’ category.

Saudi Arabia’s participation in the expo in Japan reflects its commitment to global cooperation and to what this participation offers in terms of “significant opportunities for international collaboration and benefit from global experiences to build a better world for all,” SPA said.

The Kingdom in September officially submitted its comprehensive application file in a bid to host the World Expo 2030 in Riyadh.

The host country for World Expo 2030 will be elected by Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) member states at the General Assembly meeting set to take place in November 2023.

This will be the third time Osaka hosts a World Expo, having previously hosted Expo 1970 and Expo 1990.

The theme for the expo is "Designing Future Society for Our Lives", with sub-themes of "Saving Lives", "Empowering Lives" and "Connecting Lives".  The theme "Saving Lives" includes infant vaccinations, sanitation, lifestyle (diet and exercise) and extending lifespans.

World Expos take place every 5 years. It's a platform where countries all over the world can display their latest innovations and inventions. World Expos are also known as Expo World Fairs, International Registered Exhibitions, or World Expositions.
