The Global Cities Reader. A related study of the Expo and nation branding can be found in Wang Indeed, if one factors in visitors from Hong Kong and Macao, both under PRC governance, the numbers are even more striking.

Eco-house kitchen photo by author When I exited the building after my first visit, I felt as if I had just emerged from the hybridization of a corporate product fair and an environmentally friendly IKEA, offering room after room of product displays, kitchen fittings, and green technology.
The greening of the city photo by author A second urban improvement scheme that was highlighted in many of my conversations with Shanghai citizens and Expo visitors was the aestheticization of the city.
