The Chinese, and the whole world, knows a lot more about the US than, say, Canada.
I don't even know what you're talking about. All we're concluding is that US absence from this expo will likely hurt the US more than it will hurt the actual expo (as someone suggested). We've also concluded that it's basically a non-issue (and how that would affect immigration to the US is beyond me).

India pavilion Shanghai Expo 2010

Quote:
India’s exhibition will be called “Cities of Harmony,” focusing on the integration between urban and rural regions through trade and services. Visitors to the Shanghai Expo pavilion will be led on a journey of Indian cities from the past to the present day.



The dome will be used as a 360-degree screen to tell different stories about life in cities through the ages. It will also be energy efficient with the use of solar panels and wind power.

Herbs will grow on the dome and bamboo will form part of the structure. The pavilion will feature a shopping arcade where people from various regions of India will be demonstrating and selling a wide variety of products. There will also be a food plaza with provide traditional Indian delicacies at the China Expo pavilion.

The main dome structure of the pavilion has been designed to handle an average of 450 visitors every 20 minutes, said Naidu. The pavilion will cost about US$9 million.

I guess my perception of aesthetics and architectural appeal is slightly different from those who designed the India pavilion to say the least

More on British Pavillion

from Guardian.co.uk:
Quote:
Then there's his design for a British pavilion for the Shanghai Expo next year - a project that would normally go to a top architect. And it's difficult to imagine many top architects coming up with what Heatherwick is proposing: a simple cube from which 70,000 transparent acrylic rods, each five metres long, will protrude - like a giant fibre-optic lamp from the 1970s. Inside, there will be a "seed cathedral": embedded in the ends of the light-channelling rods will be seeds from Kew Gardens' Millennium Seed Bank project. "How do you show off in a place where everyone's showing off?" he asks. "That will probably stand out more than a fancy shape or a beautiful box."
So basically theres loads of seeds inside the British Pavillion, which I think is a very nice concept

the Space Pavilion
Editor: Yang Jian
source:http://en.expo2010.cn/a/20090526/000012.htm
The pavilion will show how aerospace technologies change people's daily lives. It will offer a preview of people's "environmentally friendly, safe and intelligent" future life. The spirit of the Chinese astronauts who are exploring space will be a centerpiece in the pavilion.
