Crackdown on fake Expo souvenirs

LOCAL industry authorities will target markets - especially small gift and garment markets - to crack down on fake Shanghai 2010 World Expo souvenirs, officials said yesterday.

The Shanghai Industrial and Administrative Bureau, along with its counterparts from Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces, said it will target areas around the Expo site, traffic hubs and big shopping areas.

Officials said fake Haibao toys and other Expo souvenirs are frequently sold at local Metro stations, markets on Qipu Road and around Yuyuan Garden.

"We will give sellers a warning the first time they are found to sell fake Expo souvenirs, but they will be driven out of the market for the second time," said Xing Dongsheng, director of the bureau's trademark department.

More than 630 official Expo souvenir shops have been established around the country, selling more than 8,000 types of products.
