President's Message

It is indeed my great honor and extremely my privilege to take up the very honorable post of the forty-second President of IFAWPCA.

The construction industry forms the foundation of today's society by building, developing and improving infrastructure and creating a harmonious, safe and efficient community for the people. 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.

The world today is changing rapidly. In 2011, Japan was affected by numerous natural disasters and record-high flooding in various provinces of Japan. Similarly, around the world, we see lives perished and towns demolished due to natural disasters. Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines in November last year killed many people, caused power cuts and wiped out many villages.

Under these unfortunate events, we see a pressing need for better measures for disaster prevention and damage reduction both in Japan and around the world, and the construction industry takes an important leading role in this. Better infrastructure realized through innovative technology can take us to greater heights in minimizing the damage wrought about by calamities and natural disasters.

IFAWPCA provides such a venue for unifying our efforts to overcome the challenges besetting the construction industry in the region. Through 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!
