Mr. Kenichi Horikoshi’s & Mr. Masao Konno’s* Letter


The Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE)holds a special forum on June 27, 2007 in Taipei, on the title of "Harmonization of design codes in the Asian Region".


Code harmonization in the Asian region may be one of the most important issues for the sustainable development of Asian infrastructures. Wethink this forum can surely play an important role for the future collaboration work towards the code harmonization.


Your cooperation is highly appreciated.


Sincerely yours,


Kenichi Horikoshi
