Some developing countries have made remarkable progress in industrialization, but the process of development has at the same time given rise to serious environmental pollution. Similarities can be pointed out between the present situation in these countries and in Japan at the time of JEC's establishment. This is especially true in terms of urban concentration and intermixture of industrial and residential areas and the lack of funds and technological expertise in small and medium-sized companies.The 1992 amendment to the JEC's founding law therefore calls for providing information to developing countries about JEC's past achievement and expertise. JEC compiles records of its business activities and projects with a view to establishing a data base that is made readily available to developing countries.
