I don't know if this question has been answered, but...how long will the pavilions remain? I'm plan on visiting Shanghai in autumn 2011. Will the pavilions still remain? How long will they remain? Will Shanghai allow such a large, central area remain relatively undeveloped for years to come?

You are most welcome to the forums!

It may not look pretty but the message is very clear - Brazil has plenty of iron ore and agricultural products to sell.

Symphonic haka group at World Expo

Quote:
A group of Wellington performers will wow audiences at the World Expo opening ceremony in Shanghai next month.

The symphonic haka group features the violinist Elena, opera singer Zane Te Wiremu Jarvis and kapahaka group, Te Ihi Connections. It will be directed by acclaimed artistic director and choreographer Tanemahuta Gray.

They are the only cultural group representing New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific at the 30 April opening ceremony.

The 5s were likely donated by ... BMW? "Guerilla marketing"?

The think the official vehicle supplier is SAIC/GM.
