The main theme of the pavilion, which will cover 3,000 square meters, will be interaction between urban and rural areas.

The pavilion will be in the shape of a large square divided into four sections by a crossroads reflecting its national flag.

Three sections will represent urban areas and the other will be an open-air terrace representing nature, he said.
