Ten-year-old Ali says he lives in "the greatest city in the world - Dubai."

The young boy stars in 'Ali's Film', produced to support Dubai's bid to host World Expo 2020. Ali's presentation showcases landmarks and highlights why he believes Dubai is the ideal host for the event.

When asked why Dubai should host the World EXPO 2020, Ali says: "Because the UAE is already like one big incredible expo."

"In the last 40 years, just look at what we have done," he adds.

"We have built a place that is clean, healthy, safe and fun."

Moreover, the UAE is where the East meets the West, explains Ali.

"Expos introduce amazing things to the world.

"It's the UAE's turn to amaze the world," he adds.

A World Expo in Dubai in 2020 would be the first to be held in the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia) region.

Every five years and for a period of six months, World Expos attract millions of visitors.

Considering this, Ali also points out that the UAE is already home to 200 nationalities.

"Over 50 million people came through Dubai last year," he adds.

"We know how to welcome them."

The UAE is bidding to host the World Expo 2020 in Dubai under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future'. Dubai is the fifth city to bid, with the others being Sao Paulo in Brazil, Ayutthaya in Thailand, Ekaterinburg in Russia and Izmir in Turkey. A decision is likely to be made next year. – 7Days
