The Real Estate and Housing Developers Association Malaysia (REHDA) recently held its annual dinner which represents the pinnacle of its events for the year – wrapping up the year on a high note. In his opening speech, REHDA President Dato’ Ir Soam Heng Choon lauded the government for responding to its appeal to introduce housing initiatives to assist the industry and house buyers.
“The announcement of the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) during last year’s Budget speech by the Minister of Finance, brought much relief to developers. The Campaign which commenced on 1 January 2019 created excitement for the industry and received enormous support from both developers and members of the public. The initial HOC period was to end on 30 June 2019. We are indeed very fortunate to have a Government that is very supportive towards our industry and after further engagements with the Ministry of Finance, the HOC period was extended to 31 December 2019.” Immediate REHDA Past President Datuk Seri FD Iskandar was also honoured with the REHDA Patronship for his dedication and contributions to the association and the industry.
