One of the slogans for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo is "Technology makes the World Expo more brilliant". A press conference on Monday on the sideline of the third session of the 11th National Committee of the CPPCC again reiterated the importance of the subject. ( CPPCC Vice Chairman and Science and Technology Minister, Wan Gang, told journalists that related departments have launched a special campaign to promote the use of science and technology during the expo. The aim is to take advantage of hi-tech initiatives to create a better life in cities.

Wan Gang, CPPCC Vice Chairman, Science & Technology, Min., said, "Take new energy for example, the expo park covers a total of more than five square kilometers. It will become the largest adopter of solar energy. The solar energy power generators can reach a capacity of 4.6 megawatts."

Wan Gang said the Shanghai World Expo will see zero-emission vehicles within the exhibition area. Various electric and hybrid cars will be available. He said Shanghai also aims to offer half a million families access to the tri-networks, or the combination of telecommunications, cable TV and the Internet, so they can watch the Expo online.

Wan Gang, CPPCC Vice Chairman, Science & Technology, Min., said, "At the Expo park, we will adopt the first TD-LTE network in the world, which allows a maximum download speed of more than 100 Mbps. We will further promote development from third-generation communications to the fourth-generation."
