Aguascalientes housing industry has achieved exponential growth over the past 5 years.
Aguascalientes Gov. Carlos Lozano de la Torre welcomed Axel Espinosa Teubel, the new head of the state National Chamber of Industry Development and Housing Promotion (Canadevi), and recognized the work carried out so far by the members of the chamber for the creation of decent housing for workers in the state.
The governor reiterated his commitment to work hand in hand with the Canadevi in promoting investment and employment, because that is the only way in which poverty can be overcome and insecurity and crime can be prevented.
The housing industry in Aguascalientes has achieved exponential growth in all respects in response to the growth experienced by the state in economic terms, which in turn creates a higher demand for housing, said Espinosa Teubel.
This growth represents a major challenge for the industry, because it is clear that the demand for housing will continue to increase. An example is how demand in the National Housing Fund Institute (Infonavit) has already increased, and now more than 65,000 beneficiaries can acquire a loan for new housing, he added.
“Over the past 5 years, the housing industry has been experiencing a better growth than ever, and the coming years will be even better. Demand for housing had stalled for some time but now it is recovering,” said Espinosa Teubel.
He added that the support from Lozano de la Torre’s administration has been very positive and highlighted the tripartite subsidy which the industry received, where the federal and state governments and the Canadevi developers collaborated in order to cover for the high demand for housing, a figure that represented almost 30 percent of the total budget in 2015.
Alfonso Barba Aceves, outgoing head of the Canadevi, thanked the governor for the support received from his administration and noted that the final figures of house construction for 2015 were around 8,200 homes, via mortgage deeds made through private and public institutions.
