Expressways in downtown Chicago have been targeted with six, 61 square meter billboard ads showing different aspects of Shanghai. The city is increasingly becoming a hot place for foreign investment due to its industrial infrastructure, including a technically skilled workforce, convenient air, land and water transport links, and its role as one of the most important economic centers in China.
The six billboard ads declare: "Shanghai Welcomes You," "Shanghai -- A Market Full of Vitality," "Shanghai -- A Heaven for Investors," "Shanghai -- A Bridge Between You and China," "Shanghai -- Drummer of China's Reform," and "Shanghai -- An Economic Powerhouse."
The ads were created by the Information Office of the Shanghai Municipal Government.
