The United States has named businesswoman Lisa Gable as commissioner general for its pavilion at the 2005 World Exposition to be held in Aichi Prefecture, the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo said Thursday.

U.S. Ambassador Howard Baker said in a statement that the U.S. mission in Japan is looking forward to working with Gable, who was assigned to the post Monday, “to ensure that U.S. participation at the expo is a success.”

The Aichi Expo, held at two sites, Seto and Nagakute, will begin next March 25 and run for six months, with 122 countries and six international organizations taking part.
