Australia is among the first participating nations to complete interior works on its Expo 2020 pavilion

The organisers of the Australian participation at Expo 2020 Dubai have announced the completion of construction and fitout works of their country pavilion.

Justin McGowan, Australia's commissioner general for Expo 2020 said in a video published by the official Twitter account that "this piece of Australia in Dubai will deliver an unparalled opportunity to showcase the pioneering and innovative spirit of Australians".

Australia laid the foundation stone for its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai on 12 November 2019. UK's Turner & Townsend is the consultant for the project, and Dubai-based ASGC's subsidiary Al-Shafar Interiors (ASI) was announced as the main contractor in October 2019 to oversee the design, build, fit-out, exhibition and content for the project.

Based on the theme 'Blue Sky Dreaming', the pavilion is located in the Mobility district and will celebrate the island continent's "indigenous connection to land, sky and sea and encapsulates the idea of blue sky thinking".
