( The Belgian pavilion will give away 26 diamonds to lucky 2010 Shanghai Expo visitors.

Each week of the Expo, organizers will give away a Belgian diamond to a visitor, drawn by lottery, Leo Delcroix, the country's commissioner general for the Expo, said yesterday after unveiling the design of the pavilion, which will also house the European Union exhibition.

The size of the diamond has not been decided, Delcroix said.

For a chance to in, visitors will have to text the correct answers to questions about Belgium, like who is the king and the number of regions of the country, Delcroix told Shanghai Daily.

The pavilion will also have a daily draw for a five-day trip to the country.

The pavilion will be a 5,250-square-meter rectangle with a huge "brain cell" as the centerpiece. Visitors will enter the pavilion via a vein of the "brain," said Herman Vandaele, vice president of Bekaert, the pavilion's builder.

Belgium will highlight the concept of "green economy" at the 2010 Shanghai Expo.

The EU will have a 1,000-square-meter exhibition space on the ground floor of the two-story pavilion. It will use multimedia to showcase European cities, said Michael Pulch, deputy head of delegation of the European Commission in China.
