Shanghai World Expo hits 70m target

SHANGHAI – The Shanghai World Expo 2010 welcomed its 70 millionth visitor yesterday, meeting a bold target and also breaking a world record.

The six-month-long exhibition made the mark as it prepared to enter its final week, surpassing the 64 million visitors the Osaka World Expo in Japan drew in 1970.

Announcing the achievement, the official Expo website said total visitor arrivals broke the 70 million mark at 10.17am, on the 177th day of the event.

‘The news is exciting, and it is also encouraging for the organisers,’ said an official with the Bureau of the Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

The record number of visitors promises to give an added boost to China, which had billed the Shanghai Expo as the first World Expo to be hosted by a developing country.

It came soon after the Expo notched a record for the highest attendance on a single day – a total of 1.03 million on Oct 16.

SHANGHAI – The number of visitors to Shanghai’s World Expo has surpassed a previous record of 64 million, organisers said Saturday, as the six-month event entered its final two weeks.

The world’s fair in China’s eastern financial hub Saturday passed the 64.22 million visitor mark set by the 1970 Osaka World Expo, organisers said on their website.

Most visitors have been Chinese.

However it appeared a spurt in arrivals would be needed before the Expo ends on October 31 to reach its target of 70 million visitors.

The exhibition of culture, ideas and technology from 189 countries and dozens of companies — the largest Expo ever — has been viewed as a showcase of China’s political and economic clout and organisational abilities.
