Belgium, a territory at the crossroads of the great European routes, a host country for several cultures, whose contribution to the discoveries and progress of humanity as well as its international vocation is, at the dawn of the 21st century, more current and real than ever.

This was the message that the Belgian pavilion wished to convey to its visitors through various themes.

The first theme highlighted Belgium's central position in Europe and Brussels' function as a European hub.

The second theme was the past and present contribution of Belgians to a better knowledge and conservation of our planet and to the exploration of the universe.

Belgians have always been inventive and have actively participated in the great movement of scientific and technological discoveries. The third theme was devoted to them.

There was one particular field in which Belgium has been and remains one of the most fertile grounds for humanity: that of the life of the mind and the arts. The fourth theme was intended to demonstrate this.

"Belgium is also a unique model of cohabitation between two strata formed by three cultural communities and three regions that overlap without merging, each with its own specificities. The entire ground floor was devoted to describing this reality.

Aware of the interdependence of nations and the need for international cooperation, Belgium presented itself as a pioneer and convinced partner of the European Community and as a driving force behind the Europe of the Regions: it was within this dual framework that it intended to pursue its development. This conviction was shared with the visitors to its pavilion.
