Rediscovering China 2010-08-20 Expo's Meaning, Shanghai's Mission Part 2- The world comes to Shanghai

08-20-2010 15:05 BJT Special Report: Explore Expo with Robert L.Kuhn |


Why have all nations of Earth assembled themselves so proudly at this Expo in Shanghai?

A good part of the reason is China, now an economic superpower, competing in every arena of human endeavor.

From trade, business and finance, to diplomacy, defense and security; from science, technology and innovation, to culture, media and sports – China’s growing strengths have global implications.

I'm Robert Lawrence Kuhn. In my book, How China’s Leaders Think, I assess China's current and future leaders.

In this series, I assess Expo. And I seek clues about the future of China. The implications are stunning.

So why are all nations gathered gallantly here at Expo in Shanghai?

To save our cities, to protect our planet, to seek harmony among peoples,
to share diverse cultures, to make for our children a better world than we have for ourselves, to build the global community. All nations have also come to celebrate China; to recognize China’s emergence as a great power and a responsible nation. For China, this is an honor, and a burden.
For the world, we wait and hope.
