Ju Zhizhong, the representative from Shanghai World Expo Center, spoke highly of the "red rose" and called them a "national treasure." He also said the porcelain to be used in the World Expo is normally big in size, strangely-shaped and difficult to process, but Tangshan had finished the task in short period of time perfectly, which proved that the brand of "red rose" deserves people’s trust.

The "red rose" porcelain had been selected as the special porcelain for the highest level banquet of state banquet to serve state leaders from the 68 countries who will attend China and participate in the World Expo.

Reporters learned that 25,000 pieces and 65 varieties of "red rose" bone porcelain were transported on that day, and every porcelain has beautiful images of petals to provide the highest level of service under the theme of "beautiful petals with delicious food".

"Red rose" porcelain was successfully developed in 1973, and it is the first bone porcelain brand of China. In more than 30 years, it was selected as porcelains used in official residences of first Chief Executives of Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR, and also the special porcelain of Zhongnanhai and the Great Hall of the People.
