Safe food expats’ top news story

FOOD safety scandals hitting major local brands led the list of “Top 10 news stories of Shanghai 2012” that concern expat readers the most, according to the two-week-long public poll.

About 50 readers whose selection closely matched the final results will be awarded gifts and souvenirs at a ceremony on January 19.

The poll was organized by Shanghai Daily and International Channel Shanghai (ICS).

Readers were invited to vote starting on December 17, choosing 10 stories from a shortlist of 20.

About 200 foreign readers participated.

Other stories that concerned readers the most included the debut of a free public Wi-Fi service named “i-Shanghai,” a longer visa-free stay in the city for in-transit passengers from 45 countries, and car license plate prices continuing to surge this year, ending 2012 on a record high.
