IN BRIEF (Page 7)

Repeat Expo visits desired

Forty percent of Shanghai residents want to visit Expo 2010 Shanghai more than three times, according to a recent survey of 2,327 people conducted by East China Normal University. Ages of those polled ranged from 23 to 58, with 46 percent of them men and 54 percent women. Those surveyed showed most interest in pavilions with high-tech features.

Children enjoy Earth Day

More than 1,000 children and their families from 31 countries on Saturday participated in the fifth annual Shanghai Earth Day, hosted by the Shanghai Rainbow Bridge International School, Shanghai Zoo and Chang-ning Expo Administrative Offices. The event turned the central playground of the Shanghai Zoo into a mini Expo by displaying different ethnic villages to promote the concept of a global community to the children.

Online booking services begin

The State Grid Pavilion on Saturday launched an online reservation system to shorten visitors' waiting times. Visitors can make reservations two days in advance by visiting the official website magicbox2010.com, instead of waiting in line outside the pavilion. The reservation system is only available to individual and group visitors who have valid Expo tickets.

Cooking tips demonstrated

Representatives of Expo families in the Zhabei district of Shanghai on Monday demonstrated their cooking skills at the opening ceremony of the Shinho Healthy Cooking Competition. Three of the competitors were selected to compete with contestants nationwide in June. Mao Shuishen, an internationally known culinary expert, was invited to give an intensive training course to Expo families to help them better serve foreign visitors at the Expo.

Chinese lessons introduced

The first special Expo-licensed language products, HaFaLa Chinese, were recently released to teach Chinese to Chinese children and foreigners. The products, including software, books, palm e-dictionaries and comics, are developed on the basis of mind-mapping technology. It is the first time for HaFaLa Chinese to enter the Chinese market, three years after the products were released.

Brazilian performances

Performances by famous Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown and dances such as the samba will be staged inside the Brazil Pavilion during the Expo. Paulo Coelho, a Brazilian author, will be ambassador of the Brazil Pavilion.

Express freight firm launched

Sinotrans Sunny Express Co Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sinotrans, was officially launched last week in Shanghai. Its parent company focuses on international freight forwarding, air cargo and international express delivery, but Sinotrans Sunny Express specializes in domestic shipping along the Yangtze River. The new service was introduced to meet the growing demand for domestic shipping. Sinotrans is China's second-largest shipping agency.

Products area opens

Hypermarket chain Carrefour announced on Monday the official opening of the Expo Products Festival in its three outlets near the Expo Garden. The festival, from April 26 until May 3, will sell a large variety of Expo-licensed products, including food, dolls, textile products and daily necessities.
