The Japanese government will have a high-tech pavilion at the 1992 World Exposition in Seville, a Cabinet minister said Tuesday.

Hiroshi Mitsuzuka, minister for international trade and industry, said the government will spend $48 million on the building.

The Seville event will commemorate the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America in 1492. Spain will also host the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
