THE FIRST CHINA INTERNATIONAL IMPORT EXPO, which was held in Shanghai, concluded on Saturday. During the expo, more than 5,000 volunteers did a good job promoting China's image. Thepaper.cn comments:

The main pavilion of the expo was known as the "four-leaf clover", and the volunteers were called small leaves, providing services ranging from information services to checking ID cards.

That's a giant progress compared with the Shanghai World Expo in 2010, in which the volunteers mainly acted as guides. This time, only one-third of the volunteers were guides, with the others doing professional duties such as being liaison officers, providing services at media centers or assisting other professionals with their work.

The volunteers showed great dedication, often working late into the night to make preparations for the next day. With the efforts of these behind-the-scenes heroes, the expo was safe and orderly and it made a deep impression on the participants and visitors.

Most of the CIIE volunteers were youngsters born after 1995, and their good, professional attitude also promoted a good image of the younger Chinese generation all over the world. They are the pride, not only of Shanghai municipality, but also of China as a whole.

From the younger generation one can see the future of a whole nation. The more than 5,000 CIIE volunteers are typical representatives of the young people in China, and they have shown the world their courage, hardworking spirit, as well as professionalism.

As President Xi Jinping has said, young people should dare to have dreams, dare to chase their dreams, and be diligent in pursuing their dreams. Doing so will grant the world firmer confidence in China's future.
