Studying Expo's effect

THE Shanghai Science and Technology Commission is studying how to use pavilions after the World Expo ends on October 31 and the event's influence on local development, officials said yesterday.

Special projects will be launched to study how to promote the technologies used at the Expo. Officials said the solution as to what to do with the pavilions will be in line with international practice at Expos, agreements between China and owner countries and regions and on intellectual property rights and import and export issues.

"Leading technologies, especially new materials and environmental protection, showed at the Expo will gear up local research and industrialization of technologies such as light emitting diodes, or LED, and radio-frequency identification, or RFID," said Li Guangming, deputy director of the Expo Science Enhancement Center under the Shanghai Science and Technology Commission.

"A report on Expo's effect on Shanghai and local science will be issued later," Li said.

Using the research, the commission is making a local 12th five-year plan (2011 to 2015) to build a low-carbon and ecological city.

"The authorities will introduce programs and products from the aspects of energy, construction, environment, traffic and security," Li said.

He said Chongming Island's ecological conservation and development project, Hongqiao business area, new energy vehicles and intelligent power networks will all be included in the five-year plan to build a more environmentally friendly and advanced Shanghai.

Both the government and experts are discussing the post-Expo period and how to prolong the effects of Expo on the city and its development, officials said.
