China's Minister Public Security Meng Jianzhu yesterday inspected Shanghai's preparation for Expo 2010 and visited security guards and volunteers at the Expo site. He came to Shanghai after visiting Expo-related security works in Shanghai's neighboring cities, including Suzhou.

Meng, who is also a state councilor, stressed that the city should work out more detailed and strict measures to ensure the security of the World Expo as there was only 27 days left before the event starts.

Yesterday morning, he looked over security check points at the Expo site and inquired about police force deployment and emergency plans. He pointed out that the success of the security work lies in details. Security work within the Expo site was the vital part of the event, which includes license check, transport and logistic security, fire safety and emergency plans, he added.

At the Nanmatou police station of Pudong New Area, Meng asked about the work to issue vehicle passes for automobiles entering Shanghai. He said that the application process should be as conveniently as possible for the public, and reduce impact on people's daily life.

Meng also visited Shanghai's Hongqiao Transportation Hub. He inspected the information service centre, bus hubs, Metro entrance, the terminal of the Hongqiao Airport and the security check points in the airport. He said that the security work was a complicated task, involving various aspects of Shanghai's management. The city had to fully integrate its resources to implement .
