Press conference by REHDA Malaysia in conjunction with MAPEX 2017
(L-R): Mr. Loo Chee Yang (MAPEX Committee Member), Ir. Tiah Oon Ling (REHDA Secretary-General & MAPEX Committee Member), Datuk Ng Seing Liong (MAPEX Organizing Chairman and REHDA Past President & Patron), Ms. Carrie Fong (REHDA Youth Chairlady & MAPEX Committee Member), and Mr. Chan Kin Meng (MAPEX Committee Member) striking a pose.
In keeping with our dedication to the Government’s homeownership agenda, we are pleased to announce that the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (REHDA) Malaysia and its branches will be holding 22 property expositions, the Malaysia Property Exposition (MAPEX), nationwide this year. The largest of the expositions which is the national MAPEX, will be held this coming 14-16 April at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (MVeC), Kuala Lumpur. With the new and improved public transportation network, it is timely that this MAPEX has been theme “Greater Connectivity for Better Affordable Living.” The newly launched Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and other upcoming LRT/MRT projects are set to change the people’s lifestyle that is to opt for public transportation as the main vehicle for travelling especially when commuting to work. Efficient public transportation will make our cities free from gridlock or at least less congested and we believe our nation will be able to achieve this. With this in mind, we are honoured to invite the Minister of Transport, Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai to officiate the Opening Ceremony on Saturday, 15 April 2017 at 2.30pm.
With more efficient transportation, there will be less need to own a car and REHDA would like to ask the Government to consider easing some planning guidelines such as carpark provision for strata/high-rise development to meet demand especially for affordable housing. The space allocated for the extra carparks can be used for other common space or green area and eventually lowering the overall cost of development. MAPEX is definitely an ideal platform for developers to showcase their projects especially the new launches to the public. MAPEX, for nearly two decades has facilitated thousands of house buyers in search of their dream homes and I am condiment that it will once again, positively influence the reach and value of properties showcased. Even though the market performance currently is quite sluggish, demand for properties is still high. Regretfully, end-financing issues faced by interested house buyers have dampened actual sales. Hence, we would like to invite financial institutions to participate in MAPEX and assist the public in their purchases.
“MAPEX is an ideal opportunity for you to promote your products and packages to your target audience. Currently, only Hong Leong Bank and Maybank Berhad have confirmed their participation. On behalf of the MAPEX Committee, I would like to express our appreciation to all developers who have been our loyal supporters all these years, making MAPEX the longest running and biggest property exposition of the nation. MAPEX is BY the Developers, FOR the Developers, and OF the Developers. Let us work together towards achieving the nation’s housing agenda. We still have some choice booths available but they are selling out fast. So act now and contact MAPEX Secretariat to avoid disappointment.” – Datuk Ng Seing Liong, MAPEX Organizing Chairman, and REHDA Past President and Patron.
