Zaragoza - Commissioner General of Expo Zaragoza 2008 HE Emilio Fernandez-Castaño y Diaz Caneja hailed the participation of UAE in the international event.

Speaking to Emirates News Agency (WAM) shortly after participating in the UAE day celebrations at Expo Zaragoza, Fernandez-Castaño said that UAE's powerful and impressive participation in the event will enormously bolster the relations between UAE and Spain.

Fernandez-Castaño marvelled at the UAE's cultural and folklore presentations at the celebration, which he said, truly portrayed the deep-rooted cultural heritage of UAE. He described UAE's pavilion as one of the most distinctive ones at the international event, in which over hundred countries participate.

More than half a million visitors have toured the pavilion so far since it was officially opened in mid-June this year.

Fernandez-Castaño said that the theme of the exhibition, "Water and Sustainable development", is of paramount importance to UAE, Spain and the rest of the world, as the world countries face the challenge of the scarcity of water in the face of the continuing development.

Touring around the UAE pavilion, Fernandez-Castaño marvelled at the most innovative way it has been designed, narrating the three thousand-year history of UAE from the days of Aflaj springs to the modern days of ambitious search for new energy sources to desalinate sea water.

Fernandez-Castaño expressed Spain's keenness in enhancing friendly relations and cooperation between UAE and Spain with particular emphasis on the fields of economy, investment and tourism.

Earlier at a dinner banquet hosted by the UAE ambassador to Spain Sultan Mohammed Al Qurtasi as part of the UAE Day celebrations at Expo Zaragoza 2008, the folklore troupe of UAE brought the magnificence of the Arab culture back again to Spain. The evening of pure folklore Arabian music and dance, enlivened the reminiscences of the Arab heritage among the Spanish audience.
