Yes, Prizes Are Real

THE gift packages that city government promised to locals, including a transport card and an World Expo ticket, will function exactly as if those items were sold on the market, said Chen Qiwei, the city government spokesman.

At a press conference yesterday, Chen batted down online speculation that the transport card is just a souvenir and contains no money at all. He also dismissed speculation that the gift tickets won't allow access to some pavilions.

The ticket is priced at 160 yuan (US$23.44), Chen said. He didn't mention the value of the transport cards.

Details for the plan are still under discussion, including whether expats living in Shanghai will get the same package.

The giveaways include about 7 million free Expo tickets, one for each permanent resident household in Shanghai.
