Dr. Johnson Anene, Chairman of Real Estate and Construction (RECON), recently reaffirmed to the public the association’s commitment to bridging Nigeria’s housing gap
Anene gave the reassurance in a statement at a Press conference ahead of the 7th Real Estate and Construction Expo (RECON EXPO 2023).
He stated that the conference would stimulate economic growth through investments in real estate, infrastructure, a safe environment, and technology.
He stated: “Our goal is to promote local production of building materials, present new investment opportunities, create jobs for youths, and support the federal government’s efforts in attracting more direct foreign investment into the country. Additionally, we seek to provide solutions to our over 22 million national housing deficit while exploring ways to reduce the cost of building and improve access to land.”
He urged stakeholders to tap into the benefits embedded in the real estate sector for both economic and social considerations.
Anene said the association offers a platform for construction companies, realtors, mortgage brokers, home appliance vendors, carpenters, interior designers, and others to connect and leverage opportunities in the real estate business.
“The expo provides insights into government support, incentives, and connections with certified realtors. Buyers will have the chance to purchase products at discounted rates during the Buyers-Sellers Forum.
“With over 150 exhibitors and an expected 20,000 participants from various parts of Nigeria and across the world, RECON 2023 invites real estate developers, investors, mortgage bankers, building materials suppliers, professionals, practitioners, and the public to attend the event,” he added.
