Yesterday, the Minnesota congressional delegation urged support for Minnesota’s bid to host the 2023 World’s Fair. In a bipartisan letter to Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, the Minnesota lawmakers highlighted the state’s innovative economy, welcoming community, and many accomplishments in promoting health and wellness.
“Minnesota’s Expo 2023 is a strong candidate to host the World’s Fair,” the lawmakers wrote. “It will foster an exchange of ideas, encourage new global partnerships and advance innovation in health and wellness that will benefit the state, country and world. We urge full and fair consideration of a recommendation that the bid is in the national interest.”
