Excellent prospectives for the upcoming Expo 2015. To date, the sold tickets are already over 7.5 million and, according to predictions, will arrive to a record number of 24 million, with an important participation from China. This has been stated by the Commissioner for Expo Giuseppe Sala, in an interview by the news agency AdnKronos.
"We have worked with our local tour operators who now offer a package which puts together Expo 2015 with visits to the archaeological beauties of our Country", explained Sala. "At first we needed three months to have a VISA from Peking to Italy, now three days. 800 thousand Chinese come annually to Italy, we will bring over a million to Expo. The numbers say it all." On the security aspects, especially after the Paris attacks, Sala reassures: "For a year and a half we are working not only to controll accesses, but also to manage the people during the exhibition. We haven't just started now, we have already done a lot of good work." Following the state of works of Expo 2015 is also a drone that flies over the site and keeps the situation under control.
On the commercialisation of the tickets in China is also the Minister for Agriculture to speak, Maurizio Martina: "We have reached the million count, it is a great result and I see great opportunities for our agri-food sector in the Country."
