The World Exposition 2010 Shanghai China

109.     The World Exposition 2010 Shanghai China (Expo 2010) is an excellent opportunity to promote Hong Kong's quality city life and its position as a creative capital. In collaboration with the local creative industries we will participate in this event.

110.     We are now holding a competition on the design concept of the Hong Kong Pavilion. We have invited local professionals in the architectural, planning and design sectors to enter the competition so as to attract the best design concepts. The winning entries will be adopted for detailed design of the Hong Kong Pavilion. We have earmarked $69 million for designing and constructing the pavilion.

111.     We are also applying to take part in the "Urban Best Practice Area" at Expo 2010. About 30 cities with best practice cases will be selected for this area. We will take this opportunity to showcase our achievements in urban living, which will also help to promote Hong Kong's brand names and tap new markets.
