The African nations, the majority of which have gained independence since the end of the Second World War, are presented in the African Nations Pavilion in the International Mall.

The exhibition shows how experts predict the development of the African continent in the next four decades.

It explains the differences between African peoples and the size and shape of the many new nations on the world's second largest continent.

The presentations, which were made in collaboration with several universities and associations, show African objects and crafts.
