Sudan celebrates role of peace in progress

SUDAN celebrates its pavilion day today, following the theme of "City and Peace."

The pavilion demonstrates the country's history, peaceful reconstruction and urban progress, illustrating the significance of peace in development and looking forward to a better future.

The traditional elements and various exhibitions are intended to demonstrate the pent-up passion of an ancient nation.

The design of the entrance draws inspiration from traditional Sudanese architecture -- the Suakin Gate, creating an atmosphere of solemnity and nobility.

The pavilion is divided into three show areas.

Visitors' first sights on entering the pavilion are ancient paintings from Sudan National Museum. The country's folk art, urban scenes and wildlife protection strategies are featured in multimedia displays.

A combination of projections, pictures, illustrations and treasures contributes to show the rich cultural and historic legacies of Sudan.

Videos about Sudan's history and scenic beauty are played in a multimedia area. Highlights are films on the Naivasha Agreement, a milestone in Sudan's pursuit of peace.

Farm crops and other horticulture are showcased in a display cube that runs the length of the building.
