Around the world in 182 days: Djibouti

Journey through a land of inclusion and excitement. Pavilion of Djibouti at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, UAE.


November 2021


Land of trade and meeting. The Djibouti Pavilion introduces the country as the ‘land of trade and meeting’, a hub for transportation and logistics, and a future leader in technology and economy.

Quick facts – Djibouti:

  • Clean, Green Energy. Djibouti plans to consume 100% green energy by 2035.
  • Multicultural Society. The languages of Djibouti include Afar, Arabic, Somali and French.
  • Six years younger than the UAE. Djibouti gained independence in 1977, six years after the formation of the UAE.

In the Djibouti Pavilion:

  • Take a journey through Djibouti’s industrial evolution.
  • Experience Djibouti’s rich heritage and culture through handcrafted household objects.
  • Explore its ambitions to transform its economy and transition to 100% clean energy.
  • Explore Djibouti’s strong sustainable vision for 2035. The country is focusing on sustainability by exploring new sources of energy: wind, turbine, solar, and geothermal.
  • The ‘Technology and Innovation’ zone. The Pavilion’s shipping container design reflects Djibouti’s aim to become Africa’s largest logistics centre by 2035. The visitor journey is a logical one, mimicking the maritime efficiency in moving between the narrow streets of a labyrinth layout.
  • Connectivity over centuries. The pavilion will offer visitors the opportunity to learn about traditional and contemporary creative solutions to strategic challenges.
  • The Djibouti pavilion was first envisioned by students in the National University of Djibouti, and the design has been adapted to their original creative concept.
