China Pavilion to reopen on December 1

THE China Pavilion that less than 10 percent of visitors can watch during the Expo 2010 will be opened again to public on December 1 with the original exhibitions at the Expo, the top official of the pavilion said this afternoon.

"We promise to make those who had not visited the pavilion have the chance to see it, especially Shanghai people who had been asked to give more chances to visitors from other provinces and abroad," Xu Hubing, director of the pavilion, told a press conference.

Chinese ancient treasures will still be the highlight attraction of future exhibition in the pavilion. The Expo organizer had asked the museums who lent treasure exhibits to pavilion to leave the exhibits longer after the event ended, said Xu.

The pavilion has a section called "National Treasure," featuring a dozen of cultural relics including the "Bronze Chariot and Horse" of China's Qin Dynasty and other treasure relics from domestic museums.

Some maintenance needed to be done on the pavilion's facilities after the Expo ended and the barriers at the current waiting areas would also be adjusted, said Qian Zhiguang, deputy director of the pavilion.

The pavilions of country's 31 provinces and municipalities in the Chinese Provinces Pavilion, which is a part of the China Pavilion, will be dismantled after the Expo.

The admission to the pavilion, including the ticket prices, had yet to be decided.
