Diplomat pushes Expo presence

China offers strong support to help facilitate US participation in the 2010 Shanghai World Expo and hopes it can soon confirm its participation, China's Ambassador to the United States said in Washington on Friday.

Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong told a breakfast with potential US corporate sponsors of the to-be-constructed pavilion that US participation would be a good opportunity for it to increase friendship, understanding and exchange with China and other participating countries.

Since Expo would contribute to restoring confidence in the world economy, the ambassador said that he hoped US corporations would take a long-term perspective.

Last year, the US Department of State picked a non-profit institution to prepare US participation in the Expo and the basic floor design of the US pavilion has been completed with joint Sino-US efforts.
