Qian Zhiguang, deputy curator of the China Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo Park, revealed on Sept. 29 that the China Pavilion will be adjusted and maintained after the Shanghai World Expo. It is expected to reopen on Dec. 1 and there will be little adjustment in the content of the China Pavilion.

Qian said that the China Pavilion will enter an adjustment phase after the Shanghai World Expo to undergo maintenance of various facilities and adjustment of relevant roads. However, in order to meet the requirement of visitors who were not able to visit the China Pavilion during the Shanghai World Expo, the China Pavilion will reopen to visitors after the Shanghai World Expo is closed.

"We also did research on the content of the pavilion and hope that visitors can see an original China Pavilion just like it was during the Shanghai World Expo," Qian said. "Therefore, there will be little adjustment on the pavilion's content. However, one section will be added to allow visitors to learn more details about the construction, exhibition arrangement and the operation of the China Pavilion."

The China Pavilion displayed many national treasures, such as the bronze chariots, during the Shanghai World Expo. Xu Hubin, curator of the China Pavilion, said they are currently continuing to borrow national treasures through various channels and more national treasures are expected to be displayed in the future exhibitions. Problems, including the extension time of the exhibition, the ticket price and the method of visit after the China Pavilion's reopening, are still undergoing comprehensive and integrated assessments.

In addition, Qian also revealed that the pavilions of Chinese provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in the China Pavilion will be dismantled after the Shanghai World Expo. The dismantling program is undergoing formulation and provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities also have their own arrangements.
