Minister for Trade Simon Crean has officially launched Australia’s pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010 in China. Australia has invested $83 million in the expo, predicted to be the biggest in history. "China is going to be the fastest growing major economy this year with growth of eight percent, it is also an economy in significant transition, and Shanghai is going to be the centre of action," said Crean. "We cannot afford not to be a part of Shanghai Expo. This is $83 million well spent in promoting how we can get a better share of the action." Crean said the pavilion is expected to attract 38,000 every day from May 1 to October 31 next year, showcasing "Australian capability, innovation and achievement". Australia's expo program will also include more than 200 business events, cultural performances and concerts, and the international launch of the Building Brand Australia winner. "The scale of our participation reflects the Government’s intention to take full advantage of this opportunity to promote increased trade and two-way investment and to help Australian companies grab market share in China," said Crean.
