what do we know about a proposed Opportunities U.S.A. Pavilion? Which area of the '64-65 NYWF was it targeted for?

This publicity image is from the Fair Corporation's archives at the New York Public Library:

Pretty boring. My guess would be the Industrial Section. It would be interesting to create a photo listing of all the NYWF 64-65 pavilions that were planned but never built i.e. The World of Food, Argus, the original Pavilion of France, the Soviet Union, etc. I know several have appeared in various places on this forum through the years but it would be nice to have them in one place for reference.

Most of the exhibits that got as far as the artist's rendering stage can be found in the Progress Reports, happily found on CD at nywf64.com.

Opportunities U.S.A. looks to me like a multi-tenant pavilion for purveyors of franchises and the like.
