The 1st presentation was by Dr.
Krishna Mochtar of Indonesia on the "Problems in Materials and Equipment Procurement of Indonesian

spread of Indonesia, logistics pose major problems and therefore
variables in cost between the more developed western part of
Indonesia and the less developed part of Indonesia.
The 2nd presentation was by Dr.
Yi-Hsin (Carrie) Lin from the South East University of
Nanjing, China. Her paper was on the
Evaluation of Competitiveness of International and Chinese

contractors are increasingly competitive compared to their
competitors from more advanced countries particularly in
infrastructure and transportation related projects.
At the end of the session the FIG Commission 10 chair,
