The suggestion has been made that when the 2010 World Expo is over, Shanghai’s government should consider taking some exhibitions on tour to other provinces and municipalities. This suggestion came from an array of consul-generals and corporate executives, speaking to the city’s top political advisory body on the 150th-day countdown to the event.
As reported on the Expo internet site, officials from the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference’s Shanghai Committee agreed on the need to create a low-carbon Expo, and contributed some ideas of their own.
Wu Jinlan from the CPPCC Shanghai Committee said, "Solar power technology should also be promoted from the Expo to more projects in the city, which can make use of the Expo to establish its development strategy on a low-carbon economy."
The meeting was the Shanghai committee’s annual briefing for consulates and companies that have a presence in the city. The illustration is the topping out of the Norwegian pavilion.
