Shelter Afrique, Works and Housing Ministry to host symposium

Shelter Afrique, a pan-African finance institution supporting the development of affordable housing and real estate sector in Africa, and the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing have announced the hosting of the 34th Annual General Meeting and Symposium of the regional body in Accra.

In a written statement, the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing confirmed that the event will be taking place from June 1 to 5, 2015 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel.

The Ministry for Water Resources, Works and Housing, noted that it was customary for the Shelter Afrique AGM to rotate from one member country to another, highlighting the AGM held in Ivory Coast in 2014.

The Ministry is committed to hosting a successful AGM and noted that bringing all 44 member countries of Shelter Afrique denotes the governments’ commitment to making affordable housing a priority objective.

It will be recalled that Ghana joined the regional body in 2011 and in that period Shelter Afrique’s Board of Directors has approved investments worth US$ 44,050,000 towards support of the real estate sector in Ghana.

The Managing Director of Shelter Afrique also noted that this year’s theme would be centred on rental housing, continuing discussions from the African Rental Housing Conference hosted by Shelter Afrique in October 2014.

He added that Shelter Afrique was excited to be bringing the AGM and Symposium to Ghana, one if its most active markets.

The Managing Director also highlighted that Shelter Afrique is also currently considering a pipeline of investments with a potential total loan value of USD 28.7 million.

The AGM & Symposium is expected to have in attendance senior representatives of 44 African Governments and private and public sector interests from all over Africa. Registration has opened on the Shelter Afrique website.
