Tourism boost
The Expo 2010 Shanghai will bring more than 80 billion yuan in direct income to tourism industries in the Yangtze River Delta region. In the long run, the success of hosting the World Expo will boost industrialization, marketability and urbanization in Shanghai, as well as in neighboring regions. It will also push integrated development in the Yangtze River Delta region.

Managerial lessons
A recent survey showed that private enterprises in China have benefited greatly from the Expo 2010 Shanghai. It has exposed them to new ideas of management and development. Enterprises have been granted access to potential international partners, and have been able to learn from their experience. Learning from competitors that also have exhibitions inside the Expo Garden has enabled private enterprises in China to rethink their targets and development strategies.

Service with a smile
Expo smiles are not just an idea, but an expression of sincerity. Volunteers and staff have impressed visitors from all over the world with their high-quality service and beautiful smiles over the last six months. This friendly attitude is expected to remain in the city after the Expo ends as a symbol of the hospitality of the city and its people.

China revisited
The Expo has served as a window through which the entire world can understand China from different perspectives, different historical times, and from the level of individual citizens to government offices. The event has shown the world a real, confident and responsible China. China has changed, and the world's views about China have changed too. All of these changes will profoundly influence China's development in the future.
