    On October 8, Minister for Foreign Trade Anna Hallberg took part in the ceremony to mark the official start to the construction of Sweden’s pavilion for Expo 2020 in Dubai. Instead of the traditional turf cutting, Ms Hallberg planted trees during the ceremony. The forest plays a central part in Sweden’s participation and the tree-planting ceremony was in line with the theme of the Swedish pavilion – ‘The Forest’ – and the ambition to build entirely in wood to show alternative sustainable construction methods and minimise the climate impact of the pavilion. In close cooperation with Swedish companies, Sweden will take part in Expo 2020, which runs from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021. Expo 2020 is one of the Government’s most important initiatives in the area of export, investment and tourism promotion. For more information, see www.expo2020.se.
