From what I have read, my reaction to this is like my reaction to much of what goes on in China.  In part, I am impressed at how powerful and prosperous China is becoming.  In part, I am surprised by the way that China's government seems to have problems when it tries to show its best side to the world.

The government's goals for this expo are huge.  They intend to attract so many more people than other expos have and their expo is running for so long.

But they show themselves badly.  They have set up the expo poorly so that (I have read) people will have to wait hours to get into the popular exhibits.  They have also forcibly evicted tens of thousand of people from their homes to construct the expo site.
