He also explains here the possibility for EXPO participating countries to communicate as a foreign nation to an audience in the host country.
And he criticizes the fact that this possibility is not used particularly well or sufficiently by all countries.

In further articles, the series on EXPOs from the Institute for Public Diplomacy will look at the origins of EXPOs, their international character, educational purpose, and the intergovernmental regulation of world's fairs.
