(extraits) EXPO 2010 is being held under the theme `Better City; Better Life’ which represents the common sentiment of mankind for a safer, better living in urban environments. According to the organizers, the theme is one of the central concerns of the international community for policy-making, urban strategies and sustainable development. The Exposition is the first World Expo with a `city’ theme. CARICOM Secretary-General Edwin Carrington is the Commissioner General of the Community for the Exposition. Through exhibits and multimedia presentations, CARICOM will take advantage of the Exposition to showcase its cultural heritage, natural landscape and resources, clean energy development, urban development, tourism products, culinary arts, craft, among other areas. The highpoint of the Community’s involvement at the Exposition is expected to be the celebration of National Pavilion Day on 17 July. The National Honour Day programme consists of an official ceremony and other events such as a grand cultural performance and a reception. Artists, culinary delights, fashion and music will be promoted and showcased on that day.
