Shanghai ready to open World Expo


China is set to open the World Expo in Shanghai. Still basking in the glow of its successful 2008 Beijing Olympics, the country is treating the occasion as an equally important display of its ability to organise an event on a massive scale.

189 countries will showcase culture and technology over 6 months, attracting up to 100 million visitors.

Mishal Husain is in Shanghai and takes a look around the host city.
