Project: Okinawa Prefecture, Environmental survey
EEC has been awarded two major research projects that could have major impact on Okinawan environmental problems and the regional economy. One of the projects deals with investigating toxic waste left in the returned lands by the U.S. military. By law, returned land after military use must be a safe habitat for the local population. In joint venture partnership with professional environmental organizations, EEC is researching past toxic waste use on the U.S. military bases in Okinawa and developing a database for the future land remediation effort. EEC has the knowledge, experience, and skills to navigate the massive military organization and to acquire vital information that would be difficult for others.

Project: Okinawa Prefecture, American execution bond survey

Because of the U.S. military presence in Okinawa, Japanese construction companies have opportunities to participate in the Military Construction (MilCon) projects. However, one of the requirements of MilCon is bonding, specifically performance bond called surety, for insurance in case contractors face difficulty completing projects.

The concept of performance bond is unfamiliar with the Japanese insurance industry, and only a few are able to offer such services. Even major banks or insurance companies are reluctant to provide such insurance. However, for major general construction companies with financial muscle and clout, some institutions are willing to provide the services because of their long standing relationships.

This benefit is not afforded to the Okinawan small and medium construction companies. The Prefectural Government of Okinawa has awarded EEC a research project to conduct a feasibility study on performance bonding and to establish a system through which Okinawan local construction firms have access to performance bonds via American surety companies.
