PARIS: There were celebrations all round on Tuesday evening following the news that Saudi Arabia will host World Expo 2030.

Riyadh won the vote by a convincing margin, securing 119 out of 165 votes from the member states of the Bureau International des Expositions in Paris.

As the majority was more than two-thirds, it meant a second round of voting was unnecessary.

Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and climate envoy Adel Al-Jubeir told Arab News he was “elated, satisfied, happy, pleased” by the result.
