Ministry of Housing and Local Government, Malaysia to Present at the 2nd Annual Affordable Housing Projects

KUALA LUMPUR, Mar 25, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - Marcus Evans will present the 2nd Annual Affordable Housing Projects taking place on the 25th - 27th of July 2011 at the Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This conference provides the perfect platform to explore the dynamics of low cost housing development, inclusionary housing policies, the various funding options available, greater private sector participation, construction materials & technology, design & sustainability, project management for the enablement of cross cutting collaboration between business and social entrepreneurs.

The agenda includes a choice of three streams over two days. The streams are Urban Development & Regeneration, Innovative Materials & Technologies and Housing Finance. The Post Conference Workshop on the third day will focus on delivering successful affordable housing projects from inception to completion by drawing on project management.

According to a report by ADB, there are currently more than 1 billion people worldwide who live in inadequate housing, the majority in urban slums and squatter settlements. Much of the increasing urbanisation will take place in developing countries and will be focused on Asia and Africa. Currently 33% of all urban residents are estimated to fall below the poverty level of their country. These regions are in the throes of what could be called, without exaggeration, a housing crisis resultant to rapid population growth and disproportionate urbanisation.

- YB. Dato' Wira Chor Chee Heung, Minister of Ministry of Housing and Local Government, Malaysia
- Dato' S.K. Devamany, Deputy Minister of Prime Minister's Department, Malaysia
