This partnership was signed on Thursday 2 May 2019 by Erik Linquier, General Commissioner of the Pavillon France and President of the Compagnie Française des Expositions (COFREX) and Geoffroy Bunetel, President of the French Business Council Dubai & Northern Emirates in the presence of Elisabeth Borne Minister to the Minister of State, Minister of Ecological and Solidary Transition, in charge of Transport. The agreement aims to mobilize French companies and actors around the Pavillon France during the 6 months of the Universal Exhibition but also upstream.

Geoffroy Bunetel, President of the French Business Council Dubai & Northern Emirates stated "The French Business Council Dubai & Emirats du Nord represents a business community of nearly 800 French and francophile members. It is the largest in the Middle East. This partnership will help develop synergies between our Chamber of Commerce and COFREX/Pavillon France to promote our country during the 6 months of Universal Exhibition 2020 by mobilizing the actors present in the country (companies, institutional partners, etc.) around joint projects. This partnership will be based on events and contacts with our members to meet the needs of the Pavillon France. It will also rely on the use of the France International CCI network to attract local and international players in this exceptional space that will showcase the best of French know-how."

Erik Linquier, Commissioner General of the Pavillon France and President of the Compagnie Française des Expositions (COFREX) added "We are pleased to be able to count on the support of the French Business Council (FBC) as a partner to contribute to the influence of France in the region. We benefit from an already very close relationship with the United Arab Emirates, developed at institutional, educational, cultural or economic level thanks to the French Business Council. With already 1.59 billion euros of French exports to the United Arab Emirates, we hope that the Universal Exhibition 2020 Dubai will highlight the existing and future links between France and the E.A.U."
