President's Message

It is indeed my great honor and my privilege to take up the very honorable post of the forty-second President of IFAWPCA.
The construction industry forms the foundations of today’s society by building, developing and improving infrastructure in order for us to create safe, sound, efficient and harmonious communities. I believe that with the collaboration and cooperation of IFAWPCA member-associations, we can together build better communities, strengthen more societies and further enhance the construction industry in our respective countries.
If we look around the world, we have had burdens from natural disasters and accidents and we had paid for the damages for our daily life. In this regard, we see a pressing need for better measures for disaster prevention and damage mitigations. In order to cope with these difficulties, the construction industry takes an important leading role.
And also we are in danger of climate change. In order to keep our living environment, we should try to fight against the global warming problems. The construction industry is at the front to cope with the problems and to realize the environmental friendly and sustainable development.
IFAWPCA provide such a venue for unifying our efforts to overcome those problems and achieve the higher level of performance as the global industry. Through our international fellowship, exchange of information, and establishing cooperative working arrangements, we can find mutually beneficial solutions to problems, and partner up in actualizing the peak of human progress in the industry for the benefit of the common good.
My home association OCAJI, hand-in-hand with the brotherhood of IFAWPCA, commits itself to making this a profound reality!
