Give way to Expo visitors, Mayor tells citizens

Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng today urged citizens to maintain public order during World Expo, wait patiently in line and let other visitors see the China Pavilion first.

He urged people to learn from Beijing citizens who contributed a lot for the success of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 60th anniversary celebration of the People's Republic of China.

"More concern, support and participation from Shanghai citizens is the key factor to the Expo's success," Han said during a meeting with members of the Shanghai Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the city's top political advisory body.

More than 800,000 Beijing people patrolled streets and public areas to help visitors during the October National Day celebrations and 15-day Olympic Games.

Han asked Shanghai residents to do the same during Expo 2010 as if they were "receiving guests in their homes."

Han also asked local visitors not to visit the China Pavilion – expected to be the most popular - during the event to give more chance for other Chinese and overseas visitors to see it.

It will stay open after the Expo for local people to visit, he said.

At Expo Aichi in 2005, visitors waited four hours on average for popular pavilions. Visitors had to wait for about seven hours to watch the most popular Toyota Pavilion.
