İzmir’s candidacy for EXPO 2020

expo-2020Turkey has notified the Bureau of International Exhibitions (BIE) of İzmir's nomination to host World EXPO between April 30th and October 31th, 2020, with a theme of "New Routes to a Better World / Health for All".

We are of the opinion that the practice to hold the EXPOs constantly in the same geographies, in familiar cities should be relinquished, and the cities in different geographies carrying a potential to dispatch new messages as well as fresh ideas to the world should be given an opportunity.
