Three-year pass to be issued for import expo
Visitors attending the third China International Import Expo in November who meet certain conditions will be able to receive three-year passes from this year, according to Shanghai police.
Chen Zhen, vice director of Shanghai Public Security Bureau, told a press conference on Friday that those passes will be validated before the annual event after a verification process, so that the holders won’t have to apply for new passes every year.
He didn’t specify which conditions have to be met.
This will be one of the measures taken to further streamline the expo experience for world businesses.
Chen said the official WeChat account of the expo will include a specific section to allow participants to track their pass applications.
Chen also revealed that in addition to pass and security checks, all visitors to the Expo will have their temperatures measured before being let into the exhibition area.
Police also said that they are developing a digital traffic management platform that will enable more efficient traffic organization.
Police added they began security planning in early April this year.
