About 5,000 Bolivian producers and artists will participate in the 2010 Shanghai Expo to present the country's rich culture and welfare to the world, Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca said on Sunday.

Choquehuanca said some 4,000 producers from most areas of the country would show up at the Expo, including craftsmen and chefs, as well as a delegation of about 1,000 artists and cultural producers.

"We will show our arts of morenada, caporal, pukllay and our chiquitana music," Choquehuanca said, adding that the Bolivian pavilion has a total area of 640 square meters.

The leading theme of the Bolivian pavilion is "With the millennium wisdom we will return to the path of balance," aiming at promoting awareness of environmental protection.

Shanghai Expo 2010, with the theme "Better City, Better Life," will run from May 1 to Oct. 31 and is expected to attract 70 million visitors.
