The Slovak pavilion had an exclusive moment when Crown Prince Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum visited. In view of the Dubai Royal Family’s culture and hierarchy, the Crown Prince’s visit – as the Family’s second highest figure – is a very exclusive event according to protocol experts.

Sheikh Hamdan, who, in addition to being Crown Prince is also Chairman of the Executive Board in Dubai, is the second son of the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He is also the Vice President, Prime Minister, Minister of Defense of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Prince Hamdan, as a well-known follower of the latest technology, visited the Slovak pavilion as one of the first pavilions at Expo Dubai. And he was fascinated by the technological innovations of skilled Slovaks. He was welcomed in the Slovak pavilion by the Slovak Expo team, headed by Miroslava Valovičová – the General Commissioner of the Slovak exposition at Expo Dubai 2020.

During the tour of our pavilion, the Crown Prince of the Dubai Royal Family addressed several parts of the Slovak exhibition. He was very interested in the sustainable Ecocapsule. This mobile home does not need water or electricity connections: it can operate autonomously powered by a wind and solar mini-power plant. Prince Hamdan, as a big car enthusiast and owner of one of the world’s most impressive car collections, was particularly interested in the MH2 concept’s innovative hydrogen propulsion, aerodynamics, and stunning design.

The Crown Prince – a graduate of the UK’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst – praised the Virtual Reality Media flight simulator’s unique ability to mimic extremely realistic flight conditions.

Sheikh Hamdan was also interested in the 8th Continent – Ocean Cleaning and Research Station project, which ties in with Dubai’s long-term interest in sustainability and ecology. As a professional horse rider, the Crown Prince was also attracted by Audov, which develops innovative therapeutic cooling leggings for horses to reduce temperature after exercise or mitigate injury.

“The Crown Prince’s visit has deepened our good relations with the government of the United Arab Emirates. We are proud to have been among the first countries the Crown Prince visited in the first month of the EXPO Dubai 2020 world exhibition,” said Miroslava Valovičová.
