In Two Weeks the World Expo Host City is Elected

Last year, on May 22nd, Baku submitted its official letter of candidacy to host World Expo 2025. 18 months later there are now just two weeks until the host city is elected: the announcement will be made on Friday November 23rd, in Paris, at the 164th General Assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE).
 
The bidding process has been a very positive experience for Azerbaijan, the country’s story having been told across the world in hundreds of meetings, strengthening existing relationships and developing new ones. The theme for World Expo 2025 Baku, Developing Human Capital Building a Better Future, has appealed to all nations and all people. That it has been proposed by Azerbaijan, a country which has developed rapidly and successfully as a result of investment in its people, has magnified its relevance and made clear the importance of human capital.
 
In bidding for World Expo 2025, Azerbaijan has increased its visibility and reminded the world that it is an experienced host for global events and a country that offers market opportunities to all.
