Instead of seeing affordable housing as a specific segment, homes should be made generally affordable for all citizens, said Khazanah Research Institute director of research Dr Suraya Ismail.
“Housing is a critical issue in our country. It is important to ensure that shelter is given to everyone who resides in the country. It is about making housing affordable to all, it is not about affordable housing [as a] sector or segment or product range. There are big differences between these two [concepts],” said Suraya was speaking in one of the discussion sessions titled “Meeting Growing Needs for Affordable Housing – How is the Industry Responding? What More Needs to be Done?” in The 20th National Housing & Property Summit 2017 held in Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa today.
