World Expo

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 13 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) why the UK has not signed up for the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010; (73616)

(2) what resources her Department has allocated to British participation in the World Expo in 2010.

We are considering the Chinese Government's formal invitation to participate in the Shanghai Expo 2010. As part of that process we are looking at how UK participation might be funded and we are discussing this with a wide range of possible stakeholders including Government Departments, other parts of the public sector, and many private sector companies.
