The Core Objective of the Abuja International Housing Show
Housing matters to economic development. It can not only boost economic performance and place competitiveness, but it can also lead to segregation and spatial concentrations of poverty.
The Government’s housing growth plans induces the opportunity to improve the use of housing as an enabler of economic growth, but housing policy will need to be more responsive to local economic development conditions. In the current downturn, ensuring new homes are delivered of the right type, in the right place, and linked to wider economic outcomes will be all the more important. If housing is treated as an isolated issue, future investment is unlikely to achieve either sustainable growth or the outcomes desired by the Government’s housing policies.
It is for the above reason that Abuja International Housing show is committed to bringing all stakeholders together with the goal of Implementing a more integrated response to housing and economic development in Nigeria.
The mission of the 12th Abuja International Housing show is to bring together housing practitioners, advocates and resources so that all Nigerians will have the opportunity to have quality affordable home and suitable living environment.
Abuja International Housing show provides professional consultation services through training and technical assistance on affordable housing and related issues; supports community-based partnerships in leveraging resources; and advocates for policies, programs and use of funding resources that maximize the availability and improve the quality of affordable housing in Africa.
We carry out this mission recognizing that affordable housing is an integral part of community revitalization and economic development.
