Part 1: Face-to-Face with Shanghai Municipal Committee Secretary Yu Zhengsheng

Two hundred years ago, only about 2% of the world's population lived in cities; now it's more than half.

The rate of urbanization is increasing even faster in the developing countries. Shanghai is the largest city in China.

Shanghai Expo's theme is "Better City - Better Life". How to make the city more habitable? How to reduce the harm that city life has on the environment? These are global issues, and also Shanghai's issues.

Our host Robert L. Kuhn recently sat down with Shanghai Municipal Committee Secretary Yu Zhengsheng for an exclusive talk on his views about expo and visions for Shanghai.
