As in the past several world's fairs, various African nations will be exhibiting together in one hall. Nations incapable for funding their own exhibits are subsidized by the expo authority. Most African nations have modest exhibits, but there are sometimes hidden gems in their displays and with so many small nations, this is a great oportunity to talk with people from those countries and perhaps find out a bit more about countries you don't know much about. At the very least, you can fill up your passport quickly!
