They'll help in many tongues
3 March 2010
Shanghai Daily

THE World Expo 2010 organizer has recruited nearly 1,000 volunteers who can speak some of the world's less-spoken foreign languages - the largest such number in World Expo history, a senior Expo official said yesterday.

Most of them are postgraduate language majors at universities in Shanghai, selected out of the limited number of non-English foreign language professionals, said Xia Kejia, director of the Volunteer Department of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

They'll speak languages other than Chinese, English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

Non-English foreign language professionals are in great demand, as the bureau expects most foreign visitors to come from Japan, South Korea and other Asian countries near China.

Some foreign volunteers have also been recruited, mostly from Japan and Spain, who served visitors at the 2005 Aichi Expo and 2008 Zaragoza Expo.

The organizer also recruited some South Koreans and Italians who will work at the 2012 Yeosu Expo and 2015 Milan Expo, the next two Expos after Shanghai.

Other foreign recruits are Shanghai inhabitants who can speak Chinese.

The 5.28-square-kilometer Expo site will have 2,535 volunteers serving visitors simultaneously on normal days. The number will be doubled during peak periods, including weekends and holidays, he said.

A total of 77,000 people from both home and abroad have been recruited as Expo volunteers, including 10 percent as reserve in case too many visitors enter the site.

All the volunteers will enter the Expo site in mid-April to take part in the five test operations to minimize things going wrong during the 184-day event.

The organizer yesterday unveiled the volunteers' uniform -mainly white and green with a logo resembling the Chinese character for "heart" on the T-shirt.

Sleeves and trouser legs can be removed in hot weather.

Hong Kong Pavilion : Early opening puts Shanghai Expo pavilion in pole
The Standard
Friday, March 05, 2010



Hong Kong's pavilion at the Shanghai Expo will open on April 20 to give the public a glimpse of what is has to offer in the run-up to the main event which starts on May 1.
Once the six-month long Expo opens, up to 7,000 people a day are expected to visit the three-story creation.

"Of course, we cannot expect 7,000 people every day from May to October, especially when the temperature can reach 40 degrees Celsius in August," said Patrick Chan Chi-king, director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Shanghai.

He said the pavilion can handle about 700 visitors an hour.

The government has already applied to keep it in place after the expo ends on October 31.

"We hope we can keep it, but it is for the organizer to decide," Chan said. "If we must demolish it, we hope to transport the exhibits back to Hong Kong."

The pavilion project will cost the government HK$346 million.

Chan would not say what exhibits will be in the pavilion, but he did say there will be a main theme each month, such as "green living in Hong Kong," "One country, Two Systems," "Stories Behind Banknotes," and "Comics and Animation."

Cantopop icon Jacky Cheung Hok-yau will serve as the SAR's ambassador.

Chan said the government is still talking with the distributor of the movie, Echoes of the Rainbow, which won the Crystal Bear award at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival last month, so that it can be shown.

Project director Henry Choi Wan-kit, of the Architectural Services Department, said the pavilion's design symbolizes a city where people can move and think freely without constraints or barriers.

The three levels highlight different aspects of the city's connectivity and creativity.

"At night, dynamic facade lighting will change the look of the pavilion to illustrate constantly changing Hong Kong," Choi said.
