New Delhi: In first of its kind initiative with Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India, ASSOCHAM, India’s apex industry body has announced India’s first Realty and Sustainability Confluence and Awards 2020, to celebrate and recognize the contribution of this sector towards Indian economy. The 7 days long mega platform from 27 November to 3 December 2020 will also focus on some of the key issues that these sectors have been facing and will provide a global platform to the stakeholders, policy makers and industry leaders to deliberate on various important matters pertaining to the growth and sustainability of Real Estate sector.
Dr NiranjanHiranandani, President ASSOCHAM shared on the announcement of this initiative “Prior to the ongoing pandemic of COVID19, the real estate fundamentals were strong with leasing activity, launch of new projects, available capital and strong market demand. Due to the pandemic COVID19, Real Estate sector is also impacted badly. Migration of labour to their hometowns due to lack of work also had its impact on economy and have affected sentiments in real estate. However, due to recent re-opening of the economy, Realty sector has also started a process of revival.”
Mr Deepak Sood, Secretary General, ASSOCHAMadded “Real estate sector in India is expected to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2030. By 2025, it will contribute 13 per cent to country’s GDP. It is important for the stakeholders to come on a platform like this to push forward the growth of this sector. I strongly believe this sector has the potential to produce a lot of jobs and provide necessary impetus to our economy.”
