The article reports that China and Mexico have been quickly progressing in the Green Building field. Two new key members joining the World Green Building Council (GBC) this year, Mexico and China, attest to the fact that rapidly developing countries want to be a part of it. Chinese authorities realize that with the world's largest construction market, they have much to gain by joining forces with the GBC of other nations, and many problems to solve. China will host an Intelligent and Green Building Conference in March 2005. Mexico is another developing country that has been working hard during the past two years to set up its own national GBC.
