    PUTUO District, the western gateway of Shanghai, is making full
    preparations to welcome visitors from all around the world for the
    upcoming first China International Import Expo.Though the district does
    not serve as the main site for the expo, it aims to showcase its many
    advantages.To get more Putuo District news, you can visit shine news official website.



    The district, in the western downtown, is featured by its regional
    superiority. The region is an important gateway to connect other Yangtze
    River Delta cities and influence the whole country. Five Metro lines in
    operation — Line 3, 4, 7, 11 and 13 — and two lines currently
    under-construction — the planned Line 20 and 22 — run through the
    district.



    The intercity high-speed railway between Shanghai and Nanjing in
    neighboring Jiangsu Province, interchanges with many of the city’s Metro
    lines at the Shanghai West Railway Station. The Hongqiao traffic hub is
    10 kilometers away from Putuo, while the Pudong airport is 50
    kilometers away.



    The district along the Suzhou Creek is also full of cultural resources. A
    14.3-kilometer-long section of the creek, known as the “mother river”
    of the city, runs through Putuo. Over 20 features of the area’s
    industrial heritage, such as the city’s earliest flour and match plants
    as well as its first beer brewery, can be seen along the 18 bays of the
    creek. The riverside region was once the birthplace of China’s national
    industry.



    In recent years, Putuo has been integrating technological and innovative
    power into its transformation of industrial structures. It focuses on
    key projects such as the Taopu Smart City, Shanghai Scientific Finance
    Industry Zone, Zhenru Sub-Center and Changshou commerce and business
    zone, while driving key industries such as intelligent software,
    research and development services and scientific finance.



    Thirteen national research institutes, 19 industrial parks and 79 key
    office buildings are based in Putuo. It has attracted many regional
    headquarters of companies on commerce and trade such as METRO, Carrefour
    and NGS Supermarket Group. The Global Harbor Mall in Putuo has become
    the largest downtown shopping mall and a recreational landmark.

    Putuo has widely promoted the expo among enterprises and encouraged them
    to actively participate in the event. The retail giant Metro, Fumanjia,
    Yuexing Group and other companies have joined the Shanghai Trade
    Group’s four major buyer alliances.



    An innovation and design forum themed on “Design makes better life” has
    been selected as one of the supplement events to the expo and will be
    held at the National Convention and Exhibition Center on November 8. The
    forum is jointly organized by the Yuexing Group and the Designers
    Committee of the Furniture and Decoration Industry Association under the
    National Federation of Industry and Commerce.



    The district’s commerce committee also helped to realize the city’s
    ambition to make the expo without an ending. It has supported the
    business and commerce headquarters to set up perennial trading platforms
    for high-quality imported products, along with the new products
    launching platform.



    Two platforms, the cross-border e-commerce public service platform of
    Shanghai Northwest Logistics Park and the Oriental International Import
    Commodity Country Exhibition Center, have been selected as permanent
    exhibition and trade platforms for the expo.
