The Chartered Institute of Realtors (CIR) is gearing up for its grand launch, and the prestigious event is expected to be graced by Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.
Organizers have confirmed that the launch will take place on Wednesday, August 29, at 10 a.m., hosted at the Africa Trade House, Ridge, opposite Cedi House in Accra.
Distinguished guests slated to attend include Francis Asenso-Boakye, Minister of Works and Housing, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, Minister of Education, Firas Jaber from the Chartered Institute of Realtors, and George Mireku Duker, Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources.
Attendance to the event is strictly by official invitation, and it is anticipated to draw dignitaries from the highest echelons of the country, members of the Diplomatic Corps, other state personalities, and key stakeholders.
The guest list will encompass real estate developers both local and international, suppliers, construction firms, investors, and major banks within the real estate industry.
The primary objective of establishing the Institute is to provide opportunities for enhancing the knowledge, skills, standards, and experiences of practitioners in the real estate industry to meet global standards.
The real estate sector in Africa is experiencing rapid growth, offering numerous investment opportunities. This expansion is propelled by urbanization, population growth, and increased foreign investment.
Globally, real estate has played a pivotal role in the development agenda of economically advanced countries, generating employment for thousands of individuals with diverse skill sets and backgrounds.
Cities like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, and New York are renowned for their architectural prowess and have become major global destinations due to their real estate achievements.
The African continent is not lagging behind in this development trend. The government's involvement in providing housing, particularly for the low-income sector, signals a promising future for Africa.
The Chartered Institute of Realtors recognizes the industry's fast-growing rate worldwide, emphasizing the need for players, both potential and major, to be equipped with the necessary tools to enhance global industry activities.
As part of its vision and mission, the CIR launch will initiate a series of seminars and workshops involving seasoned speakers, lecturers, and industry professionals from renowned institutions worldwide.
These events aim to share knowledge and experience to benefit industry players.
Looking ahead, the institute envisions establishing itself as a professional body providing education and training courses to its members, contributing to the continuous growth and development of the real estate industry in Ghana.
