Two Millionth Visitor to Polish Pavilion

Two million people have visited the Polish pavilion at the Expo 2010 world exhibition in Shanghai, China, since the event began May 1. The 2 millionth visitor, a 21-year-old Chinese woman named Xu Xiao Dan, entered the Polish pavilion July 1 just after 11 a.m. local time.

A special ceremony was held in her honor, preceded by a big countdown that attracted pavilion staff and Haibao, the official mascot of Expo 2010. The host of the ceremony was Sławomir Majman, head of the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency and general commissioner of the Polish section at Expo 2010.

According to Majman, the Polish pavilion is being visited by over 50,000 people a day on average and more than 1,000 Chinese businesspeople have already taken part in business meetings in the pavilion.

Xu Xiao Dan, who graduated from college this year, came to Shanghai just for one day specifically to visit the fair.

She received flowers, a special certificate and a computer. The prizes were funded by the Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG), one of the sponsors of the Polish pavilion. On her journey to Shanghai, Xu Xiao Dan was accompanied by her mother. They stood in line for almost an hour to enter the Polish pavilion.

“The Polish pavilion looks very nice from the outside; we wondered what the Polish exhibition would be like,” she said.

The award ceremony attracted much interest from the Chinese media. As interest in the Polish exhibition continues to rise, officials estimate that at least 6 million people will visit the pavilion by the time the event ends Oct. 31.
