Chen Xianjin, deputy director of the Shanghai World Expo Coordination Bureau, said that during the seven years, a total of 13 global partners, 13 high-level sponsors and 32 project sponsors worked with the Shanghai World Expo.

In addition, there were also 13 special project corporate sponsors that joined in, including state-owned, private, foreign and other types of enterprises, which showed the strong appeal of the Shanghai World Expo. All businesses were optimistic about the general prospects of China's economic and social development.

Besides providing funds, material objects and services to the Shanghai World Expo, many local and overseas enterprises also directly participated in the Expo preparations and organization. Nine sponsors set up pavilions at the Expo site and became important supporters, participants and presenters.
