The exhibition with the theme of "Urbanized Landscape" is to present the Czech Republic as a modern state of the third millennium at the crossroads of cultures, nations and ideas, said Stehlik. The Czech government has earmarked 500 million crowns (27.78 million U.S. dollars) for the exhibition, but Stehlik said he predicted a budget cut of 29 million crowns (1.61 million dollars) because of the current financial crisis.
The Shanghai Expo, which is to start on May 1, 2010, will last six months. The Czech Republic will celebrate its national day at the exhibition grounds on May 17 with performances organized by the National Theater in Prague, street-art shows, and a culture week featuring Czech design and arts.Source: news.xinhuanet.com
