EXHIBIT: The Pavilion is divided into three exhibit areas. Throughout, the Pavilion will share the sustainable development practices employed by Burundi and its capital city of Bujumbura and the win-win relationship between Bujumbura and the rural areas of Burundi in the process of national reconstruction and economic recovery. Visitors enter into the greeting area, where a receptionist will have available all the pertinent information about Burundi, from tourism to economic investment. The colorful artwork of Burundi accents this friendly area. In the second exhibition gallery, the products of Burundi are on display, from fisheries and farms to medicinal herbs. The cultural artifacts of Burundi are on display here as well, from wooden carvings to highly decorative masks. The third area is a performance stage, where drummers and world-renowned native dancers will perform periodically throughout the day.
