Intelligence for life. The Spain Pavilion aims to become an example of intelligent creativity, capable of uniting people around sustainable projects in the fields of science, technology, production, education and art.

Quick facts – Spain:

  • Leader in organ donation for 28 years. In 2019, Spain retained its leadership for the 28th year, accounting for 6% of all worldwide donations.
  • A beautiful, diverse country. 48 UNESCO World Heritage Sites scattered around different regions, placing us at #3 in the world.
  • 4.000+ Spanish words have Arabic origin. The cultural ties that unite Spain with the Arab world are reflected in the Spanish vocabulary.
