The American branch of Haier signed a sponsorship deal with the US Pavilion yesterday afternoon.
Haier, based in Qingdao City of east China`s Shandong Province, declined to reveal the amount of the sponsorship. Haier is one of China`s largest household appliance manufacturers.
Finally, the United States raised enough money for its World Expo 2010 pavilion, said Jose Villarreal, commissioner general of the USA Pavilion.
The US, which signed its participation almost at the last minute and was among the last to start its pavilion, will finish construction and outfitting the building before Expo`s start on May 1.
