JSCE had proposed and extended support through the international scientific exchange fund to organize the symposium in order to exchange academic, research and practical resources on construction management and planning/design of concrete structures including high-rise buildings accumulated in Japan and outside world. The Kochi University of Technology, Japan and Mongolian University of Science and Technology- School of Civil Engineering had cooperated to organize the symposium.

Dr. Ganzorig Erdene, president of MACE had formally opened the symposium and Dr. Ishii Yumio, president of JSCE had delivered the opening remarks.

There were 8 presentations including 2 presentations from Mongolian participants. The 7 presentations were included in the Symposium Proceedings. More than 200 participants including participants from Japan and Taiwan had participated in the symposium. There was a very active participation in the discussion period.
