  • New Zealand’s Six60 is all set to open the Dubai Expo 2020.

  • Prime Minister Ardern feels this could be a great opportunity for global exposure.

  • Promoting trade and economic recovery are the prime concerns through this endeavour.

New Zealand’s top-notch band Six60 will perform at the prestigious Dubai Expo-2020 trade show, a 6-month-long fair. This announcement came from the New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.  It was of the view that the performance would be a great opportunity for one of the most loved New Zealand bands to start the Expo on a high note, a great way for New Zealand to bring about the economic recovery.

Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister, is of the view that this could be a great opportunity for New Zealand to connect with the rest of the world in this post-COVID-19 state of existence. There is a budget expansion of NZ$62M to deliver a robust trade pavilion. This was after the event had gotten postponed due to the onset of the deadly COVID-19.

Ms Ardern further revealed how the country had done well in terms of export markets and that the country was looking forward to entering new directions.

Six60 is based out of Dunedin and is all set to be the headliner at the Expo. It shall be performing there for about a week, where it will compete with other 192 participating teams from different countries across the world. The expo could reportedly be a great place to open up contacts with different parts of the world and help in building lasting trade relationships.

As far as safety from infection at the Expo is concerned, several groups from New Zealand may get priority vaccination against COVID-19 before going to Dubai. Though the details for the same have yet to be made public.

While the event is still being addressed as the Expo 2020, there needs to be a total funding done of about NZ$8M, due to the fact that work was disrupted in the past and now has to be taken from the ground up, especially in terms of filming for the cultural and entertainment programme.

With Care for People and Place being its umbrella theme, New Zealand plans to show different aspects of creativity, entertainment, and values, to ensure that people get a whiff of what the real New Zealand is made of.
