The real estate sector, as one of the major components of the Nigerian economy that forms the main driving force for the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and large-scale employment generation encompasses manufacturing and service industries which includes; housing, agriculture, manufacturing industry, mining infrastructures and services.
Undoubtedly the most transformative sector of any economy and one of the most effective tools for poverty alleviation and job creation. Contributing meaningfully towards the vibrant development of the Nigerian economy, the sector is capable if adequately structured, of fast-tracking economic growth and development coupled with high level of massive employment creation thereby creating a better and sustainable future development.
However, there is a need to track this economic dynamism and advocate for policies that will address the many challenges inhibiting this lucrative sector from reaching its full potential.
Looking at how the future of the property market will be judged and how to unlock the advantages that abound in the real estate industry, that we continue our commitment to help drive the growth of the sector, says The Chief Executive of 3INVEST, Ruth Obih-Obuah, during the announcement ceremony of the 7th Edition of Real Estate Unite Summit scheduled to hold on Monday, September 17, 2018, at Eko Hotel, VI, Lagos.
