The Dubai Expo 2020 seems to bring about an expansion of 85000 jobs in the economy.

A report published recently, focusing on the economic impact of Expo 2020 by oxford Economics highlights that Dubai will be able to cater up to the need of 277000 new jobs. The report talks about the number of jobs that will be generated from this expo, predicting that a total of 77,149 jobs would be created between  the years 2013-2021, almost half of which will stem from travel and tourism sector.

The expo 2020 is expecting to have 25 million visitors, who will be demanding an increase in employment to cater to the growing need of tourism and travel.

Reem Al Hashemi, UAE Minister of State and Managing Director of the UAE’s Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai, said: “Dubai Expo 2020 will leave a lasting legacy not only in the UAE but also beyond its borders”.

“As our theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ suggests, Dubai Expo 2020 aims to welcome the world to collaborate and build partnerships for sustainable development. In that, Dubai Expo 2020 will spur significant employment, trade and investment opportunities for the entire Menasa region, leaving lasting economic impact.”

These jobs will create a large number of job possibilities and hence demands by the tourists who will need customer service and attention by the city of Dubai, which promised to have an outclass Expo 2020, if they qualify.

The winning contestant of Expo 2020 will be announced in November 2013, depending on the vote of 183 member-nations of the Bureau International des Expositions, the international organization responsible for selecting World Expo host cities.
