The Luxembourg Pavilion in the spotlight “Resourceful Luxembourg” is the main theme of the Luxembourg pavilion: resources and the reinvention of Luxembourg over the years through the creative use of its resources.

Members learned about the different sections that highlight the aspects of the pavilion: diversity, connectivity, sustainability, dynamism and beauty.

The aim is to discover the pavilion with all five senses, explained Luxembourg Pavilion Commissioner Maggy Nagel. It is important for each country to be able to present itself at such a universal event, stressed the President of the Chamber of Deputies Fernand Etgen.
