“We celebrate the laying of the foundation stone to announce the actual implementation phase of Kuwait’s pavilion at the Expo, which is the transition phase from theoretical planning to practical implementation,” Watyan said. He added that as Kuwait lays the foundation stone for the Kuwait pavilion, “we look forward to completing everything we started in an effort to strengthen the close ties between Kuwait and Japan, as well as the rest of the world,” as the Expo welcomes international visitors.

Under the theme of “Visionary Lighthouse”, the Kuwait pavilion, opening in April 2025, will display Kuwait’s history and culture. Watyan noted that visitors can experience a journey through the past, present and future in four exhibition rooms that combine tradition and cutting-edge technology. – KUNA
