UAE's participation in the forthcoming Zaragoza International Exhibition 2008 on 'Water and Sustainable Development' will highlight the keenness of the country in water preservation and sustainability. Spanish ambassador to UAE Manuel Pineiro hailed this participation and described UAE as one of the pioneering countries in the world giving care and attention to the rational use of water for sustainable development.

The ambassador told WAM that UAE will share with the world community its valuable experience in sustainability. He made special mention of the Masdar Initiative for production of clean energy and the development of a green city. The unique exhibition to begin on June 14th this year will last for three months bringing most of the countries from around the world together to think about water and share their respective experiences in the conservation of this most precious resource, seen as the source of life.

Zaragoza International Exhibition 2008 will discuss important themes which include water and life; water as a channel for civilization; water, progress and sustainability and water control. 'The Declaration of Zaragoza' to be issued at the end of the exhibition is widely expected to work as a blueprint for the future policies for individual countries.

The ambassador said that over 104 countries will participate in this historic event, and it is a great honour for Zaragoza to host this international event of paramount importance.

Situated on the river Ebro and its tributaries in a valley with a variety of landscapes, ranging from desert to thick forest, meadows and mountains, Zaragoza is projected by experts as the ideal place for an exhibition of global importance.

Pineiro said that Zaragoza has been selected to host the event because of its reputation as the administrative capital to one of the prime hydrographic regions in southern Europe, and has an experience spanning 3000 years in water management.

The Spanish ambassador said that the exhibition will enhance the international cooperation in the field of sustainable development and diversification of water sources as well as preventive actions against climate change. In this area, UAE has an important role to play, as it is a pioneering country in the fields of environment protection, search for alternative sources of energy like renewable, solar and wind energies. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
