In November 2016, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) authorised the upcoming universal registered exhibition. Osaka authorities have bid to host the event, and they made this bid on 24 April 2017. Their theme for the expo is “Designing Future Society for Our Lives.”
However, the venue for the event is not in existence. Osaka’s authorities have made a tender to the Japanese to win a license for the casino resort that will host the 2025 World Expo. If the town receives the rights to build the casino, it will be completed before 2025 which is when the expo will happen. The casino will be erected on the Yumeshima artificial island.
Osaka 2025 World Expo Plans
Ichiro Matsui and the members of the coalition will exhibit their plans to the BIE in Paris for the 2025 World Expo.
There is a bill that the Japanese government is currently working on for the resort. They released a preliminary draft plan early this week that detailed their proposals for the nascent casino and the gambling regulation. One of the recommendations is that casino players in Japan will be limited to weekly and monthly visits.
The casino resort will have an accommodation, dining, entertainment centre, a conference venue and many other features.
Other Nations Bidding for the 2025 World Expo
Bidding for hosting this event started in November when France submitted their tender. Their theme for the event is “Sharing our Knowledge, Caring for our Planet.” Below are the other countries that have submitted:
- Baku, Azerbaijan – Topic: Human Capital

The closing date for submission has already passed, and it was on May 22, 2017. In November 2018, the schedule will be announced. The purpose of the expo is to find solutions for challenges that are in the world and raise awareness about them.
Before the 2025 expo, the 2020 World Expo will happen in Dubai under the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.”
