Opening Ceremony of 2010 Shanghai World Expo

China celebrated the opening of the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai on April 30, 2010 (Friday). Fireworks and lasers lit up the sky, as music from Western to Chinese classics and pop filled the air. A lengthy flat screen television stretched across the bank of the Huangpu River – as boats carrying the flags of all the expos participants sailed past.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton attended a reception on April 30 at the Department of State for marking the opening of the USA Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo. Secretary Clinton thanked Department of State employees, USA Pavilion employees and USA Pavilion corporate sponsors for their help preparing for the launch of the USA Pavilion.

About 190 nations and 50 international organizations will participate in the six-month-long event.
