The UAE inventor, Ahmed Abdullah Majan, has announced that he would launch a personal initiative to promote UAE's bid to host the World Expo 2012 in Dubai during his participation in the 13th British Invention Show (BIS) in London.
Majan said, in a statement upon his arrival to London, he would coordinate his national initiative with the work team responsible for the file of UAE's bid.
The Higher Organising Committee for the 13th British Invention Show (BIS) has, for the first time, selected the Emirati inventor to compete for the coveted World Invention and British Invention of the Year Awards for his diverse great inventions and technological solutions.
Majan was invited to present his amazing inventions and creations along with other 400 genius minds from across the globe.
