Expo fever in South Africa

2009. 29 May

( Expo 2010 mascot Haibao is expected to appear in downtown Johannesburg in South Africa today and will move to Cape Town, another major tourist resort in South Africa, tomorrow.

The two promotions are likely to draw the attention of more than 300,000 overseas Chinese in South Africa, the organizer of the World Expo promotion event said.

An overseas Chinese Expo promotion committee in southern Africa was set up in November. It has carried out a series of promotions in South Africa, which enhanced local people’s interest in Expo Shanghai.

Executive Chairman of the committee Cao Zhixing said that the Expo 2010 Shanghai is also a grand affair for overseas Chinese. The Expo 2010 needs the contribution from Chinese people all over the world.

Its Chairman Zhang Zhengdi said that the committee would spend more efforts and go extra mile to promote the Expo, Shanghai and China in southern Africa.

South Africa is the only African country to build its pavilion in Expo 2010 while other African participants tend to rent pavilions from the organizer or present in the Joint-Africa Pavilion.

In the South Africa Pavilion, more than 50 South African enterprises will show their cutting-edge technologies in mining, medicine, biological and aviation industries and seek for more cooperation with Chinese enterprises.
