Ladies and Gentlemen, (来源：www.EnglishCN.com)
Over the past eight years, the Chinese government and people have worked with great enthusiasm and made tremendous efforts in preparation for Expo 2010 Shanghai. We have mobilized resources throughout the country and pooled the wisdom of the world. Now, the Expo is about to open. I am confident that, with concerted efforts, people around the world will witness a successful, splendid and unforgettable World Expo. I am equally convinced that if we carry forward and build on the invaluable achievements of human civilization shown by the World Expo and its spiritual legacy, we will make our cities more beautiful, the Earth-our common home better and our future brighter.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Chinese people are moving forward with full confidence in reform, opening up and the socialist modernization drive. We will make continued effort to improve the livelihood of the 1.3 billion Chinese people and at the same time make greater and new contribution to the noble cause of world peace and development. We will hold high the banner of peace, development and cooperation and remain committed to the path of peaceful development and a win-win strategy of opening up. China stands ready to develop friendly relations and cooperation with all countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and work with people of other countries for a harmonious world of enduring peace and common prosperity.
Now, I wish to propose a toast,
To a successful, splendid, and unforgettable World Expo,
To the solidarity and friendship of people of all counties,
To the development and progress of human civilization, and
To the health of all the distinguished guests and your families.
