The late Mr. Takeo Atsumi, former President of Overseas Construction Association of Japan, Inc. (OCAJI for brevity) and IFAWPCA Lifetime Member, contributed immensely towards the global development of the construction industry during his 15-years term of office as OCAJI President, including his 2-years tenure as CICA President. Before relinquishing the OCAJI presidency in May 1990, Mr. Atsumi entrusted OCAJI with his private fund in the amount of TEN MILLION YEN (Y10,000,000) and the management thereof, with the view of setting up an Award for the purpose of promoting the growth and development of the construction industry in each IFAWPCA member nation. To accomplish this end, OCAJI decided to frame a merit system for commendation of a person, or a group of persons, who has rendered meritorious services in the promotion of the construction industry in each IFAWPCA member nation and laid down the guideline on the operation and management of the said Award.
