The success of Lithuanias information terminals no doubt were significant in making Lithuanias pavilion at Expo 2010 one of the most popular with visitors. A week ago on October 7th the pavilion received its 5 millionth visitor. It is tempting to think that the considerable publicity generated for Lithuania, as a result of the success of Lithuanias pavilion, has contributed to the opening of the new Shanghai-Kaunas cargo route less than a month ago. This will make Kaunas a major distribution point for Chinese goods to Europe. Weekly flights from China carrying 80 tons of cargo are scheduled.
