Speaking at the Awards night, Jason Kothari, CEO, Housing.com said, “The Real Estate sector is projected to grow 14% year on year and grow to US$ 850 billion by 2028, accounting for about 13% of the GDP. Economic growth is projected to be 8% over the next 10 years, the highest in the world. Urbanization is expected to grow from 32% to 50% by 2050, this means that around 400 million people will be moving to urban areas.The Government’s introduction of various initiatives, such as RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority), Housing for All by 2022 and easing for norms for FDI, make this the most exciting sector in not just India, but globally. I think that we are all very lucky to be at this time and place, and be a part of this exciting story in India over the next 10 years.”

Vishwasjeet Singh, Editor-in-Chief, www.estrade.insaid, “Real Estate sector alone contributes more than US$ 100 billion to India’s economy, accounting for roughly 5% of the GDP. With the Government’s push for better infrastructure, the potential for growth and opportunities is endless for all players.” He further added,“When you see that Real Estate and Building Utilities players complement each other, a combined platform to bring them together is a major win for all. Moreover, Singapore being the financialand technological hub, and a leader across industries, offers great learning to Indian professionals. Estrade awards bring together the key stake holders every year.”

Estrade Jury Member ArshiPathan, Director, MoonpoolConsulting Pte.

We need a holistic and inclusive approach from the inception stage of such projects.”
