Exporters and business people in Shanghai and neighboring provinces are poised to take advantage of the Shanghai World Expo to build strong links with customers from around the world.

The Expo, which opened to the public Saturday, is the largest world exhibition ever and is expected to attract 70 million visitors from home and abroad.

It would also facilitate the city''s efforts to transform itself into a global financial and shipping center, said Lian Ping, chief economist of the Shanghai-based Bank of Communications, China''s fifth largest lender.

"It will help attract more bankers, business people and investors from home and abroad to visit the city and do business here. The event will become a growth engine of the city and neighboring provinces for the next decade," Lian said.
