The green energy sector is specified as a priority area for the Middle East/ GCC and Africa countries governments and the private sectors, due to climatic conditions, high energy usage, increasing commitment of governments and new private entrants as solution providers.

The purpose of the mission is to help Ontario companies promote their products and services, meet key business players, governmental stakeholders and business associations from cleantech sector. The Ontario government has booked 42 sqm for the Ontario pavilion in the Canada section to accommodate up to 10 Ontario companies in an open-concept booth.
