The Comoros pavilion is located in the sustainability district. This volcanic archipelago in East Africa has aligned itself perfectly with the sub-theme of sustainability. Visitors can learn more about the animals and plants of the Comoros, as well as marine life, such as the rare coelacanth fish, through underwater exhibits made from recycled plastic. They will also be able to discover ylang-ylang, the aromatic flower used in perfumes (Comoros is the world's largest producer), as well as various spices and vanilla. Visitors are invited to make a wish and throw a ring into the burning crater of Mount Karthala, inspired by the Queen of Sheba.

Under the theme "Flower in Bloom," the pavilion reintroduces the world to the magic of the Comoros, beginning with a Grand Wedding at the Bangwe and a walk along a spice-scented garden, then highlighting its commitment to a sustainable future.
