The association was established in October 2018 with the aim of actively promoting
international affairs in the building and housing sector. So far, international activities in the
building and housing sector have fostered exchanges by the Japan-Myanmar Association for
Industry of Housing and Urban Development (JMHU), participation in the International
Housing Association (IHA) at the Japan Federation of Housing Organizations, exchanges with
overseas governments etc. through the Japan Global Exchange Forum for Housing, Building
and Urban Development (JHBUD), as well as overseas development by Japanese companies,
with activities related to international affairs being conducted by the respective organizations.
By administering and implementing these initiatives centrally with the establishment of this association, closer cooperation among the concerned countries and consolidation of overseas information etc. can be achieved, allowing even more dynamic and effective activities to be developed.
Japan's technological capabilities in improving earthquake resistance, and the quality of its
housing components, equipment and materials as well as operation and maintenance
capabilities in the building and housing sector are highly rated overseas.
Nowadays, Japanese companies are also very active in overseas development.
With this background in mind, the association strives to disseminate information and provide business opportunities that will contribute to the overseas business development and expansion of its member companies. The association also contributes to the economic development of each country under the guidance and support of government agencies such as the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) etc., by promoting private sector exchanges in the building, housing and urban development sector with the countries concerned.
Many companies have joined the association, so we would like to actively support their business activities overseas while maintaining close information exchanges among the companies.
We look forward to your continued guidance and support in the future.
