NETHERLANDS, September 23 – News item | 23-09-2022 | 09:40

The European tender for the Netherlands pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka has been officially launched with its publication on tenderned.nl. Market players are invited to submit proposals for the design, construction, maintenance and dismantling of the pavilion and the visitor experience. Proposals can be submitted until Monday, December 5, 2022 (1:00 p.m. CET). Innovation and sustainability are key themes. In total, 7.8 million euros (excl. VAT) were allocated to the creation of the pavilion and the visitor experience.

The theme for Expo 2025 Osaka is ‘Designing the future society for our lives’. The exhibition will focus on shaping a world where grand challenges related to issues such as climate change and health will determine our quality of life. With a pavilion in the “Saving Lives” district, the Netherlands wants to offer answers to the question at the heart of the Osaka exhibition: ‘What is the happy way of life?’

“A pavilion at the Osaka exhibition is the visiting card of the Netherlands,” says Liesje Schreinemacher, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation. ‘Expo gives us an international platform to showcase innovative and sustainable Dutch solutions in the areas of climate change and health. Cities are getting bigger and bigger; the challenge is to ensure that people can live happy, healthy and green lives together. And innovative Dutch companies can make a big contribution to this. Expo 2025 Osaka will give them every opportunity to do so and help strengthen our commercial position in the region.

Under the title ‘Common Ground: A Dutch invitation to create healthy societies together », a multi-year campaign was launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in view of Expo 2025 Osaka. Japan, like the Netherlands, faces urgent and complex challenges, including climate change, urbanization, aging populations, energy transition, food security, maintaining accessibility of healthcare and the well-being of the population. These are all important areas in which the Netherlands has a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

But no country can solve these enormous challenges alone. The Netherlands therefore wants to provide a platform at Expo 2025 in Osaka to bring together different perspectives and expertise and come up with common solutions. The pavilion and the visitor experience will be unique.
