The UAE will mark "2020: Towards the next 50" through three major events, namely the inauguration of the Barakah Nuclear Plant, the launch of the Hope Probe and the hosting of the Expo 2020 Dubai.

Together with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UAE continues to support the development of civil nuclear energy around the world and call for operational transparency.
Hans Blix, Director-General Emeritus of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, has said that the starting of operations at Abu Dhabi's Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant demonstrates to the world how doable it is to shift to environmentally-friendly alternatives to generate power.
It will deliver 25 per cent of the UAE’s electricity with zero carbon emissions while also supporting economic diversification by creating thousands of high-value jobs through the establishment of a sustainable local nuclear energy industry and supply chain.
