The title of “Best Story of June” is shared by feature writer Yao Min-G and the business department.

Yao’s series of stories on Expo site Zone C (Expo Daily, June 15, 16, 21), with good writing skills and a fun touch, were based on her own tour experience in the site. Min-G gave a very detailed and useful three-part route to the zone rating attractions as hottest, popular, or unrated. She did lots of preparatory work. And the series received positive response from foreign readers who found her stories contained useful information.

The business desk contributed to the Lujiazui Forum series (B1, June 25/A10, June 26/A3, June 27/A11, June 28) with four consecutive days of reporting on the key economic and financial forum held in Shangahi. There was good teamwork throughout the preview, forum and after-forum reporting. The series touched on popular topics and offered insight from both regulators and experts.

One of the “Best Page Awards” goes to the biweekly My Business column (B5, June 4), design by Chen Jie. Biz reporter Feng Jianmin offers interesting stories as well as good photo shooting skills.

The other winner of ‘Best Page” was our South Africa supplement (June 10, C1-8). Editor Liu Qi and page designer Chen Jie organized the special coverage on FIFA World Cup with wonderful illustration by Yu Yige.
