PARIS, July 1 (Xinhua) -- The Paris-based Bureau International des Expositions (Bureau of International Exhibitions or BIE) Thursday praised the organizers of the popular 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.

BIE President Jean-Pierre Lafon said he was "impressed" after Chinese delegates gave a presentation at the 147th plenary session of the BIE on the developments of the Shanghai Expo over the last two months.

The presentation of the Chinese delegates covered infrastructure, volunteers, the arrival of visitors and a review of the opening ceremony.

Wang Jinzhen, deputy chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, headed the Chinese delegation and thanked the BIE and tourists for their support.

BIE Secretary-General Vicente Loscertales also praised the organization of the Shanghai Expo, saying that everything was going smoothly and the number of visitors was very likely to meet set targets.

The Expo has so far been a great success, and there are great expectations for the remaining four months, Loscertales said.

An intergovernmental organization established in 1928, the BIE is the international governing body of Expos. It oversees the schedule, bidding and selection processes as well as organization of world and international expos.
