Niue, a tiny Pacific nation with around 1,400 people, celebrates its National Pavilion Day on Oct 19 with a performance of traditional song and dance in Oceania Square.

Niue, which is self-governing, is in free association with New Zealand.

Though small, it is the world's largest coral atoll and is known as the Rock of Polynesia, or the Rock.

The pavilion in Zone B is within the Pacific Pavilion, which is themed "Pacific — Inspiration to Cities."

In 2003 Niue became the world's first WiFi country when free wireless Internet became available throughout.
