President's Message

Park Jong Woong
It is indeed a great honor for me to be the 43rd President of IFAWPCA.
It will be also a privilege for the Construction Association of Korea to host the 43rd IFAWPCA Convention in May 2017 in Seoul, Korea.
Since the establishment of IFAWPCA in 1956, IFAWPCA has significantly contributed not only to the promotion of fellowship and cooperation among Asian and the Western Pacific region, but also to the development of the global construction industry, positioning itself as a major international construction organization.
For this legacy of IFAWPCA that we all owe to our Founders, past Presidents and past Officers, I feel strongly obliged to pay respect to their foresight and wisdom and to extend gratitude for their persistent devotion.
I have a profound belief that the IFAWPCA, as a networking platform for its members to exchange valuable experience and knowledge, will play a more important role in the future, leading the construction business in the region to a more developed stage.
While the construction industry has been recognized as one of the primary industries contributing to a country’s economy, it is now facing diverse challenges such as stagnated economic growth, decreasing margin, rapidly changing market environments and many other adverse factors.
To step forward to a better future, CONVERGENCE with other related industries will play the key role in boosting the construction industry in the near future
The usage of electronic technology, adoption of Green Technology, and application of robot mechanisms are all products of this changing world that converge with the construction industry to make innovative progress towards building sustainable infrastructure to provide a safer living environment to our people.  This is our responsibility to raise awareness for Urban Resilience and construct solutions to overcome global climate change and natural disasters.
As the President of IFAWPCA, I promise to fulfill my obligations to promote international cooperation and development of among member countries as well as to further expand IFAWPCA’s convergence with other industry players towards a progressive and sustainable future for all of us.
Thank you.
PARK, JONG-WOONG
