We show that the generator matrix of a generalized concatenated code (GCC code) of order L consists of L submatrices, where the lth submatrix is the Kronecker product of the generator matrices of the lth inner code and the lth outer code. In a similar way we show that the parity-check matrix of a generalized error location code (GEL code) of order L consists of L submatrices, where the lth submatrix is the Gronecker product of the parity-check matrices of the lth inner code and the lth outer code. Then we use these defining matrices to show that for any GCC code there exists an equivalent GEL code and vice versa
