(CREBA) to be held from 12 noon to 3 p.m. at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City on March 30.
This was announced by Noel Toti M. Carino, CREBA national chairman and Charlie A. V. Gorayeb, national president.
During the meeting, CREBA and PEZA are set to ink a pact towards the joint promotion of foreign and local investments in the development of economic zones all over the Philippines that will generate exports, jobs and other economic opportunities, including housing and real estate.
Director-General Plaza holds doctorate degrees in peace and security administration, public administration, ecclesiastical law and humanities. She served three terms as congresswoman of the first district of Agusan del Norte from 1986-1998. She holds the rank of Brigadier General under the Armed Forces of the Philippines Reserved Force with distinctions as first woman general of the AFP, the Philippine Air Force and of the Mindanao region.
Founded in 1973, CREBA is the Philippine umbrella organization of the real estate and housing industry. Its members are property developers, builders, contractors, suppliers and manufacturers of construction materials, real estate service practitioners and other stakeholders engaged in more than 68 allied fields.
Towards its vision of “A Home for Every Filipino”, CREBA’s aspirations for the homeless sector are embodied in its “Five-Point Agenda for Housing”, a package of policy and legislative reform proposals developed over the years which target the provision of 500,000 housing units per year to address homelessness within a period of 20 years.
CREBA’s monthly meeting serves as a forum for industry stakeholders and government officials to express their views and initiatives on issues affecting the real estate and housing industry.
