SHANGHAI, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- On December 8, the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai (AmCham Shanghai) signed a sponsorship agreement with the USA National Pavilion to advance its active support of America's participation in the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. As part of the agreement, AmCham Shanghai was also named the Official Business Chamber Partner of the USA Pavilion. Moving forward, AmCham Shanghai will develop a series of programs to facilitate business between AmCham Shanghai members and visiting businesspeople and government officials. AmCham Shanghai programming will include conferences, seminars, training sessions, government roundtables and a CEO speaker series.

Since 2007, when Shanghai was selected to host the Expo, AmCham Shanghai has been an active participant in promoting the importance of U.S. participation in the 2010 Shanghai World Expo and sponsorship of the USA Pavilion. The Chamber has focused on connecting members who wish to contribute to the Pavilion with organizers and providing logistical and communications support to the USA Pavilion team. The agreement, signed by AmCham Shanghai Chairman J. Norwell Coquillard and USA Pavilion President Nick S. Winslow, was also cosigned by USA Pavilion COO Mark Germyn.

The 2010 Shanghai World Expo is anticipated to be the largest expo in history -- hosting 70 million visitors, 90 percent of whom will be Chinese. With companies increasingly looking to China for future growth, participation in the Shanghai World Expo is an opportunity not only to showcase American business, culture and values but an opportunity for companies to connect with millions of Expo visitors in the world's fastest growing market. AmCham Shanghai looks forward to continuing its work with the USA Pavilion team to ensure a successful event in 2010.
