This legislation would provide funding for the construction of a U.S. pavilion at the Osaka World Expo in 2025 – a prerequisite to securing Minnesota’s bid to host a Specialized World Expo in 2027
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) introduced bipartisan legislation to provide funds to build a U.S. pavilion at the 2025 World Expo in Osaka, Japan.
This new legislation follows the Biden administration’s approval to grant federal recognition to Minnesota’s proposal to host a Specialized World Expo in 2027. Titled “Expo 2027 Minnesota – Healthy People, Healthy Planet: Wellness and Well-Being for All,” this event would bring the world together to showcase the best of innovation and accomplishment in health and wellness, including highlighting the Upper Midwest’s important contributions in this field.
Construction of a U.S. pavilion at the Osaka World Expo is a prerequisite to securing Minnesota’s bid to host a Specialized World Expo in 2027. Representative Dean Philips (D-MN) has led efforts to secure funding for a U.S. pavilion in Osaka in the House.
“There’s no better place to showcase the exchange of ideas and American ingenuity than Minnesota,” said Klobuchar. “This legislation helps us get one step closer to highlighting our state’s strong offerings in health and wellness to the world. I’m proud of Minnesota’s leadership in this sector, and I will continue working to ensure we have the opportunity to show off the very best Minnesota and the country has to offer.”
