Provincial Minister Tertuis Simmers to deliver keynote address

8 November 2022

The Provincial Minister of Infrastructure, Tertuis Simmers, will deliver the keynote address at the 7th Annual Affordable Housing Africa Convention, at Cape Town Marriot Hotel Crystal Towers, Century City. 

The event will be held from Wednesday 9 to Friday 11 November, with delegates from the public, private and financial sector brought together in one room. The platform will allow stakeholders to discuss and debate solutions to tackle and close Africa’s housing gap in a rapidly urbanising environment. 
Speaking ahead of the convention Minister Simmers said: “I am humbled and excited by the opportunity afforded to me to address this esteemed event. I look forward to deliberating on ideas and examining the challenges that the housing industry is faced with across Africa. This is particularly important due to the unprecedented economic constraints that we are all experiencing. It is through platforms such as this convention that we as a government, together with the private sector and citizens, will find innovative solutions that ensure that no citizen is left out of the home ownership market.”
