The Chief Executive of Hong Kong, Mrs. Carrie Lam, will be the keynote speaker at the opening plenary of the 6th Asia-Pacific Housing Forum, organised by Habitat for Humanity, on 6 September 2017 in Hong Kong.
The Housing Forum, which runs from 4 to 7 September, brings together policy-makers, academics, non-governmental organisations and others to seek solutions to poverty housing. This is a regional and biennial event, advocating for affordable housing solutions and decent shelter for low-income families, with strategic support from UN-Habitat, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Cities Alliance.
At the opening plenary, Mrs. Lam will speak about Hong Kong and its housing challenges. More than 300 delegates from civil society, public and private sectors are expected to attend the Housing Forum.
