Construction was completed Monday on the China Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, with fireworks, floating balloons, red lanterns and ribbons, and deafening gongs and drums to celebrate the occasion.

It seems like everyone in Shanghai is doing something to make the 2010 World Expo a success, whether it be putting in longer hours at work or turning their houses into home-stays. Whatever the means they all serve the same end: to get the city looking as hospitable as possible, as China Daily's reporters find out.
