Swiss give free peek for Expo

SWITZERLAND yesterday began to present free highlights of exhibits to be shown in its Shanghai Expo pavilion in a tour of universities in Yangtze Delta cities.

People in Shanghai can sit in a chair lift, have a close look at interactive pavilion features, and watch a 3D viewer that brings to life sustainable success stories from the country in Songjiang University Town.

The town has seven universities and the exhibition will remain there until Friday.

The exhibition will then visit Nanjing, Suzhou and Zhejiang universities for two days each.

It will return to Shanghai, in Zhongshan Park, on November 21 and 22.

"As we head into these final 187 days to the Expo, we are excited that the public can sample the delights of the Swiss Pavilion before the Expo opens," said William Frei, consul general of Switzerland in Shanghai.

The Swiss Expo group hoped the preview would capture people's imaginations and encourage more visitors to the Swiss Pavilion next year, said Manuel Salchli, deputy commissioner general and director of the pavilion.
