France is officially candidate to host Expo 2025 [fr]
The President of the Republic announced France’s bid with the theme "Knowledge to share, Planet to care".
In a letter sent on November 22, 2016 to the Bureau of International Expositions, Mr. François Hollande reminded that the universal exhibitions of the Nineteenth century have left a legacy and imperishable memories, and explained that the chosen theme will allow exhibitors to focus on innovative projects in the fields of health, education, culture and the environment.
The exhibition would be held from May 1 to October 30, 2025 in the Ile-de-France region. It would also be supported with active contributions from several large cities throughout the territory.
