This is a testament to the convening power of Expo and an Expo legacy based on technology, innovation and the vast array of opportunities.?

Stefan Oschmann emphasised, ?Establishing Merck?s Sustainability Centre in Dubai, emphasises our commitment to broadening our relationships with other innovators, scientists, and entrepreneurs.?

Merck is the recent organisation to join District 2020 alongside Siemens, Accenture, and most recently announced, Shanghai-based Atlas Capital Holding.
