Keeping this in mind, the Convention will be focusing on strategies for exploiting the potential of real estate as the best asset class and engine of high economic growth in the coming years.”
Mr. Parveen Jain, President, NAREDCO, said, “The confidence of stake holders, especially developers and investors, has dented because of slowdown in the sector, the Convention would thereby provide a platform to discuss these challenges and evolve ways to accelerate the pace of real estate growth in the country. At the same time, the developer community has to work hard to gain the confidence of the customers.”
