According to the government’s 2014 National Housing Policy, by 2030 the Cambodian population will need an extra 1.1m houses to meet demand. However, with most developers focusing on middle class and luxury developments and as income disparity between the urban rich and rural poor still persists, affordable housing provides an untapped niche opportunities for developers and investors. 

To find out more about the wealth of opportunities within the affordable housing sector, on the 24th of May at BRED Bank Auditorium, our speakers will discuss how developers can position themselves within this gap in the market by combing low-prices, profitability and sustainability to provide affordable housing in the Kingdom. 

So don't miss this exclusive opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities in realizing affordable housing projects.

Why Come to this Event

Experts and market leaders will share their insights on the challenges and opportunities in realizing affordable housing projects including:

  • Insights on the housing needs of low-middle income population
  • Constraints and sustainable solutions for human settlement
  • Affordability and business sustainability
  • Affordable housing as a mass market
  • Minimizing affordability impact on weight and overall infrastructure
