British Foreign Secretary David Miliband on Tuesday visited Shanghai, expressing his hope for a successful 2010 World Expo in the city.

Miliband, who arrived in Shanghai from Hong Kong on Monday afternoon, visited the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center on Tuesday morning. Calling it a dynamic international metropolis, he said Shanghai had made great achievements in recent years.

The Englishman said the expo theme, "Better city, Better life," provided his country with a great opportunity to show its leading advantages on urban sustainable development to the world.

The United Kingdom has worked together with China on urban sustainable development, a move that reflected its determination to build a long-term Britain-China cooperative relation on expanding areas.

He praised the design of the British Pavilion at the expo as "attractive".

Miliband visited the China-Europe International Business School(CEIBS) in the afternoon, discussing globalization and leadership with students.

Shanghai is the second leg of his six-day visit. He flew to the southwestern city of Chongqing on Tuesday afternoon and will arrive in Beijing on Wednesday.
