Construction finishes on Hong Kong Pavilion

CONSTRUCTION of the Hong Kong Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo was completed today as Tang Ying-yen, chief secretary for the administration of Hong Kong, and Shanghai vice mayor Yang Xiong planted two osmanthus trees in front of the building.

Hong Kong would spare no effort for the Shanghai event as it would be the first World Expo in China and a stage for the country to showcase its achievements, said Tang.

The special administrative region will explore the theme "Hong Kong - the Infinite City," with a focus on its urban transport network, advanced scientific facilities, financial and trade systems, multinational culture and sustainable high-quality urban life.

The three-story metallic structure will sit next to the China Pavilion. It will have an exhibition area of about 800 square meters.

The pavilion will symbolize the imagination and creativity of Hong Kong people, said pavilion director Ng Hon Wing.
