The United Arab Emirates pavilion in the International Plaza presented modern Egypt, one of the oldest nations in history.

With photographs, films and displays and examples, the changes that were taking place in the land of the pharaohs were explained. Since it had completed its independence in the post-World War II era, the country's social and industrial systems have changed radically.

There is a touch of the traditional in the official national exhibition. Pyramids, temples and famous statues from antiquity were represented in a photographic gallery.

The United Arab Emirates pavilion was immediately north of the West Gate. It was right next to the Brazilian pavilion.
