Pavel Antonin Stehlik, Commissioner-General of the Czech Pavilion, is finally a happy man!
Over the last few days, Shanghaiist has been all over the Czech media and interwebs, but back at home here, it looks like the local press will not even mention our name, like we’re some bad word.
According to a new report by Shanghai Daily, which references an “email which was … leaked this week on the Internet” without stating where exactly the email was leaked, the majority of operational problems at the Shanghai Expo highlighted by Pavel Antonín Stehlík, the Commissioner General of the Czech Pavilion have been “swiftly resolved”. No details, unfortunately, on what problems remain unresolved.
Writes Emily Yao:
[Stehlik] pointed out this week there was “no danger of any operational problems whatsoever regarding the Czech Pavilion at Expo 2010 at this time.” He added that the e-mail was written and sent on May 7 and the relevant issues had been answered two weeks ago.
His response confirms a statement from Hong Hao, Director General of the Bureau of World Expo Coordination, that the matters had been resolved.
Communication Manager of the Czech Participation, Jiri F. Potuznik, explained that the e-mail was an internal communication between participants and organizers through the Steering Committee, of which Stehlik is a member. He regretted that the security of communications had been broken.
In other words, show’s over folks, there’s nothing to see here, please move along.
