Record Beijing expo to mark China’s 70th anniversary

By Mike Tyler

April 29, 2019 - October 7, 2019 - The Beijing Expo, the biggest international horticultural exhibition ever staged, will be a centrepiece of China’s celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Communist state.

The show, located in Yanqing on the outskirts of Beijing municipality, will open on April 29th and last for more than five months, according to the Economist newspaper.

Organisers say at least 16 million visitors are expected to attend the expo, with more than 100 countries and international organisations putting on displays.

Built by thousands of workers, the 960-hectare expo park is half as big again as the one made for the 2008 Olympics, which was previously the city’s record-setter.
