Reem Al Hashimy, Managing Director and also Minister of State for International Co-operation, said the district would have a legacy long after the end of the six-month event, which runs from October 2021 to March 2022. The city expects 25 million visitors, with an early boost from domestic visitors. The head of Expo 2020 has spoken of how the site will become a ‘new city of the future’ as Dubai expands in the years after the world fair. The district will be a hub for technology and for living. "The investment was not to build an Expo. The investment was to have a new city of the future," Ms Hashimy said. As part of the nearly $7 billion project, residential districts and a new metro extension have ensured the site is connected to the ever-expanding Dubai. The district already features on the Dubai Urban Master Plan 2040, which sets a massive expansion in size and population of the emirate from 3.3 million to 5.8 million.
