Mr. Yaser Alsharif, Chairman of DANAT, said in a statement issued on the occasion that the Kingdom of Bahrain was able to demonstrate its significant and high-quality presence at the Expo, noting the work of the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities in this regard.

“At DANAT, we succeeded in being an important part of the Bahrain pavilion’s message in this exhibition, highlighting its civilizational elements and a pioneering reputation that it has been able to consolidate over thousands of years, and highlighting Bahraini famous pearls” According to Alsharif.

Mrs. Noora Jamsheer, the CEO of DANAT, stated that the DANAT laboratory is one of Bahrain's most important modern technologies in the field of pearl and gemstone examination, which is in line with the concept of Expo exhibitions, which are concerned with modern sciences and inventions and what the future will be like. 

She praised the Institute's team's efforts throughout the Expo's two months, and expressed her delight with the positive outcome of DANAT’s participation in the Bahrain Pavilion, which embodied the pavilion's theme "Intensity Weaves Opportunities."
