Zhang Kerui, a retired worker in Qingdao, Shandong province, has collected 1,600 pieces of news about the Qingdao 2014 International Horticultural Exposition since 2009. He integrated these pieces of news into 21 newspaper clippings and gave them to the Qingdao Expo on Oct 24.
“After knowing that Qingdao would host the expo, I started to collect the news and hosted a newspaper clipping exhibition to give people a better understanding of the expo,” said Zhang.
The staffers of the Qingdao Expo were glad to accept this special present. “I’d like to extend my thanks and appreciation to all for their support to the Qingdao Expo,” said Tang Hui, a staffer of the archives of the Qingdao Expo’s executive committee. “We will keep these materials and hold an exhibition for the public.”
