Yekaterinburg Seeks 2020 World's Fair!
Izmir, Turkey; Ayutthaya, Thailand; Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, all want too want EXPO 2020.
"We should win," said Lena Popova, to the Washington Post. She is a former police officer who works as office manager for a foundation called City Without Drugs. "Where else can you have the expo but here? We have everything."
"The intellectual level has always been very high," said her boss, Yevgeny Roizman. "This is the center of the country."
World's fairs attract people and attention - last year's six-month world's fair in Shanghai brought more than 70 million tourists. Countries build pavilions; the host nation invests in new airports, roads and hotels; and the money flows.
"It's extremely important for us," Tushin said. "If we are chosen, we will become a different city."
