“Ghana’s Real Estate Meet Up” Event to Scale Up Conversations of Attracting Investors - Organizers

Ghana’s real estate industry players as well as relevant stakeholders are set to meet tomorrow 10th December 2021, to deliberate on a number of issues concerning the real estate sector in the country.

The event dubbed ‘Ghana’s Real Estate Meet Up’ is been organized and spearheaded by Cameo 1 Homes, a Real Estate Development Firm here in Ghana.

The real estate sector is believed to have a lot of investment potentials but it’s also confronted with numerous structural, regulatory, financial, and other challenges.

Speaking to the Director of the Event, Mr. Anastas Anderson, on what the event seeks to accomplish, he noted that the industry stakeholders would be having conversations on how to enforce laws relating to the industry including the newly enacted Real Estate Agency Act 2020 (Act 1047) to ensure the industry works as it is supposed to do in order to help address the current alarming housing deficit.

Adding that conversations about creating the conducive environment to enable investment into the sector would not be left out as the event intends to extend the conversation of what needs to be done to attract investors to the real estate industry to the policy makers.

Mr. Anderson further said it is high time that discussions about artisans within the construction and development chain, having to go through some sort of basic training for certification, was brought forward to find lasting solutions.

“We are going to scale up the conversation that will keep going after tomorrow’s event.

“What are we doing that is not attracting investors into the industry. We will discuss what role government is going to play in order for the industry to develop.

“Of course, we will be tackling the training regime for artisans in the construction industry; masons, plumbers, electricians etc. they need to undergo basic training to offer the best of services.

“And so, as part of the discussions, we are going to look at how best we can get partners both local and foreign to train these artisans,” he elaborated.

Anastas added that the event is the first of its kind in Ghana and even in Africa noting it is industry specific whereby stakeholders come together with government authorities to find out how best they can make the industry better by driving investments into the sector.

He therefore urged industry practitioners to come together to brainstorm and make the real estate industry one of the best on the continent particularly to deliberate on how partnering with each other on projects can help solve the housing deficit in Ghana.

The event is expected to take place tomorrow at Polo Court, 13 Patrice Lumumba St, Accra. Among the speakers are the Minister of State In-Charge of Housing, Hon. Dr. Freda Prempeh (MP), Deputy Energy Minister, Andrew Agyapa Mercer (MP), Dr. Kofi Amoah Abban, Paulo Cruz, Lisa Watt, Malinda Lievers, and many others.
