With the opportunity of 2010 Shanghai Expo opening, PAROS established PAROS Expo-Service Union which provided high-quality service for overseas Chinese and experts. In order to make more Expo friends, we hold several events like Pavilion ^Directors¨ Salon ̄, ^Dialogue between Mayors and Directors ̄ and ^Dialogue between Africa Pavilion and Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park ̄. In addition we also have a salon called ^discovering the mystery of Chinese Medicine ̄. The events are not only services for PAROS Expo-Service Union, but also lay a good foundation for cultural, scientific and technological exchanges between china and Foreign countries.

PAROS (NGO) with its platform of Expo, has great achievements with international societies, who had set up permanent contacts and made friends with nearly 200 pavilion directors and representatives of 2010 Shanghai Expo.
