The closing ceremony included an outdoor exhibition at the youth park in Bucharest during which a shield of appreciation was offered to the Syrian Embassy for the Syrian distinguished participation.
Official visitors and foreign and popular Romanian delegations were deeply impressed by the Syrian Embassy’s pavilion for which the largest space was allocated due to the variety of distinguished materials and exhibits with which Syria participated.
