The Shanghai World Expo, which has attracted feverish attention from around the world, closes its curtain on Sunday after receiving a record 73 million visitors, who are joined by numerous more bidding a reluctant farewell to one of the most memorable Expos in history.

China has realized its century-old dream of hosting the event. And at the 184-day grand gala, China and other countries from around the world eagerly showcased their history and culture.

The Shanghai World Expo, the first held in a developing country in the event's 159-year history, set one record after another in terms of the number of participating countries or regions, the size of the Expo park, and the number of visitors.

The spectacular exhibitions of the Shanghai Expo provided the world with enormous enjoyment and enlightenment. The Expo will be remembered for its splendidness and gloriousness.

The ideas of pluralism, harmony, tolerance, originality and co-existence that the Shanghai Expo has upheld will carry on, transcending time and space, and become the most treasured assets for mankind.

The spiritual and physical legacy that the Expo leaves behind will inspire and encourage people to carry on and create an even brighter future in the post-Expo era.
