The volunteers' uniform for the Shanghai Expo site was also unveiled at the signing ceremony. The stylish design featuring a memorable motif pattern was highly regarded by the attending media and staff of the Shanghai Expo. With blended with white and green colours, the volunteers' outfits promote a sounding green concept while demonstrating the themes of harmony, purity, and creativity. The outfit utilizes natural and environmentally-friendly fabrics woven together by cutting-edge knitting technology, resulting in a true display of classic beauty and comfort.

Mr. Ding Shui Po, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xtep, said: "The World Expo is a prominent event attracting international attention. The Shanghai Expo will be the centre of attention across the world, due to the duration, scale and number of participating countries of the event. At the same time, a group of volunteers will make their generous contributions at this event, shuttling between various exhibition halls and offering assistance. These volunteers, sporting the Xtep brand, will appear at every corner of the Shanghai Expo arena and impress all visitors and attendees.

"Xtep is a young, energetic, fashionable and innovated brand which exemplifies the Shanghai Expo's key themes of 'inspiration' and 'integration.' Striving to become the world's top fashion sportswear brand, we must be equipped with a global vision and greater international initiatives. The Shanghai Expo is truly an international event getting people together from all around the globe. We, through the sponsorship opportunity, hope to demonstrate our vision of 'Rooted in China, Facing the World' and gain increasing support and recognition," Mr. Ding concluded.
