Upon his arrival in Osaka, Fayot attended the official signing ceremony of Luxembourg’s participation contract in the 2025 World Expo in Osaka, becoming one of the first signatories of the exhibition. This will mark the Grand Duchy’s 25th participation in the Expo, which will take place from 13 April to 13 October 2025.
Fayot and his team also presented the Luxembourg pavilion project to the organizers of the Expo.
The pavilion, designed by the Luxembourg architecture office SteinmetzDeMeyer, will correspond to the maximum with the criteria of circularity and to have the least possible impact on the environment. It will thus be an opportunity for Luxembourg to show its commitment and knowledge in the field of circularity and sustainability.
On Friday, Fayot was due to meet the Japanese minister responsible for the 2025 World Expo in Osaka, Naoki Okada.
